In addition, Peskov said that, according to Kadyrov, “public opinion in the Republic to that libel applies irreconcilable, does not accept this slander,” and “leadership, of course, are fighting and will fight with defamation in accordance with the law”.
The history of the Chechen homosexuals, published by the “New” Sand is considered to be “phantom” as their stories were impersonal, and official protection, they, according to him, is not addressed. Against this background, Sands considers it wrong not to trust the words of Kadyrov libel allegedly distributed to “New”.

Journalists were asked to oblige the head of SK Alexander Bastrykin to conduct an audit, but information about it in the end never appeared.
