The head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov has strongly criticized the Russian media, which, in his opinion, do not pay enough attention to the problem of persecution of the Muslim population in Myanmar. He published a relevant video in which he threatened if necessary to oppose Russia’s position in this matter.

The video, posted on YouTube, Kadyrov called the organizers of the persecution of Muslims “devils” and added that it had repeatedly appealed with a proposal “to send troops to Myanmar”
The head of Chechnya said that he could not make that decision on his own, but he stressed that if Russia will support the “devils” who commit crimes in Myanmar, he will oppose Russia’s position.
Note that yesterday at the Embassy of Myanmar in Moscow held an unauthorized rally against the persecution of Muslims, the police did not disperse.
This fact is ironically commented on in the Russian opposition: in particular, Alexei Navalny retweeted the post, which on the left shows a calm protesters in Moscow, a Muslim with a subject similar to the gun, and the right participants in the rallies on March 26, apprehended by the guards.
