In April Kadyrov in his instagram said about given to him “dear BROTHER, the crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed al Maktoum of the most hardy horses in the world” named Leonardo.
“Transparency” notes that the price of such a gift, considering what the Sheikh says about the animal as his best horse, can calculate millions of dollars and, according to conservative estimates, is not less than 500 thousand dollars.
In April, “transparency” has addressed in the Ministry of labor for clarification about whether the rules on gifts for officials on animals: recall that any gift worth more than 3 thousand rubles, received by an official, must be submitted to the Treasury and can be purchased from there they have personal money. However, the income of Kadyrov in recent years, according to his Declaration, was only about 400 thousand dollars.
Received from the Ministry of labor in September, the response confirmed suspicions “transparency”: animals, according to the legislation, not different from other gifts. Thus, it is concluded in the organization, there is a reason “to contact the administration of the President of the Russian Federation and the administration of the head and government of Chechnya with a request, gave Kadyrov notification about the gift and how much it was appreciated by the horse, presented to the head of the Republic Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed al Maktoum”.
A spokesman for Kadyrov, Alvi Karimov, commenting on the initiative, “transparency”, told “BBC” that “much nonsense they can not come up. The world has always been and is the practice, when great politicians, friends give each other horses, dogs, give each other personal arms. It is a worldwide practice, it is not today, not yesterday, not last and not in this century. It’s a sign of respect. “Transparency international”, apparently, think in the scale of his vision of the world”.
According to Karimov, the horse will “never sell, it never put on races, so she wouldn’t hurt his leg. It is a token, a sign of respect to each other. You, of course, all this is not write, but this is our world — a world that we recognize, respect, which we appreciate, which evolved over the centuries, millennia. This is not the world where “transparency” and so on,” he added.
To report the location of the roller press Secretary refused.
