Ascetic, patriot, the horse-lover: who wants to seem in an interview with Ramzan Kadyrov


Great interview that the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov gave an anonymous correspondent of RIA “Novosti” was quite expected. In it, Kadyrov again said that he was a loyal foot soldier for Putin that the USA ostensibly supports the opposition in Russia and terrorism in the Republic fully defeated. However, pay attention to a few points, unusual for this type of material.

So, getting closer to the end of the conversation, answering a question about whether the people around Kadyrov to tell him that he is wrong, Chechen politician said that they never allow themselves such “rudeness”.

As it turned out, the maximum allowed in Chechnya critics — is a neat question whether the disputed decision Kadyrov’s any secret intention. Note that in the header of the interview, however, was rendered by distorting the meaning of the paragraph, the phrase: “Please say, if not right”.

Read how Kadyrov’s relatives replace each other in the leadership of Chechnya.

In the “personal” parts of the interview Kadyrov is trying to form his image as an honest ascetic, sincerely takatsukasa power.

So, he says, is for two days at work, distracted only “to the prayer and tea”, the dollar savings is not (here he has compared himself with “a poor man in the village”), gets paid in rubles and cannot save.

And — if made — would have gave all for the good of the Republic, “help people”, and “not an investment, and charity”.

The same moral ascetic Kadyrov tried to prove himself further, telling that the main thing that I wanted to achieve from their children, is a knowledge by heart of the Qur’an and excellent performance. Here he recalled that one of his daughters was recognized as the best student of the Republic (it happened after her school report about his grandfather Akhmad Kadyrov). The education of boys, according to Kadyrov, in the family solely military: they have become used from childhood to the ground and the sounds of shots in the future “to secure a quiet life”.

The image of the ascetic, however, is broken in the final interview, when asked Kadyrov about his horses. It is seen that the head of the Republic, this theme is interesting, but he prefers not to mention the cost of animals: in the press they repeatedly estimated from 300 thousand to 2.5 million dollars per head.

However, speech should go about politics, Kadyrov once again tries on the image of a stern patriot. So, he denounces “enemies of Russia”: from Erdogan to Poroshenko (the latter is “washed-up alcoholic”) and fiercely supportive of Assad, who “took the right position — to be with Russia.”

Thus, ironically, the life of the Republic the interview had little to do with, except for the numerous assurances that it is safe now. The only issue with the condition of the region, devoted to the construction of the training center special forces: this is set of 25 questions.
