During the event, human rights defenders will visit Dagestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, North Ossetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia and Stavropol Krai.

At the meeting with Ramzan Kadyrov was planned to discuss, in particular, the situation in the village of Kenkhi. A resident of highland village of Ramazan Zalaldinov recorded a video message in which he complained of the situation with utilities, after which he began to receive threats, the house was burned by the unknown, and Zalaldinov fled to Dagestan.
However, Ramzan Kadyrov, categorically refused to meet with the delegation of the HRC saying that the meeting will be attended by human rights activist Igor Kalyapin, who is the head of Chechnya believes a slanderer and a traitor. The head of the “Committee for the prevention of torture” Kalyapin in March in the center of Grozny was assassinated. Customer some believe Kadyrov.
– How can you interpret the failure Kadyrov to participate in the work of the presidential Council? – This “MK” asked the elder of the HRC Lyudmila ALEXEYEVA.
– It’s not Kalyapin, if it was not in the delegation, then Kadyrov would come up with another reason to shy away from a difficult discussion with human rights defenders. Kadyrov — the person who used that he can do anything, he can violate any rule of decency and the laws of Russia, and any criticism for it will not follow. He got used to the fact that all around him should feel humiliated, it is nobody will ask uncomfortable questions. And we believe that every citizen, especially the head of the Federation should be responsible for their actions.
Kadyrov understands that we will not be humiliated as we have people from Chechnya. He doesn’t want to relive unpleasant moments when he was asked about why the Republic lost people or about why the citizens of the Republic, which received Federal money for the recovery of personal property, needs half the amount to roll back into the pockets of local officials. He knows what we ask, and therefore did not want to come.
– Heads of regions are obliged to participate in meetings of the HRC, if they are invited?
– Not formally required. But it is the presidential Council. And when we are discussing a question of particular ministries, agencies or representative government, they always come. They feel obliged to come if they are invited to the HRC. And to give all possible explanations.
One only Kadyrov doesn’t owe anyone anything. He turned into some kind of… Untouchable, who can create any action. The fact that Kadyrov will not come to the presidential Council, which came to him in the Republic, will simply mean that he spat on the President Putin. Once again spat. Contempt of the President by the Kadyrov.Related posts:
