Controversial Chechen leader Ramzan Kadirov directly calls for the murder of those who skip quarantine
In the Russian Republic of Chechnya they already have their first three cases of coronavirus. In the face of the Covid-19 outbreak, the controversial Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadirov, has announced that anyone who violates quarantine and infects others should be punished with death.
Kadirov himself targeted a Chechen resident who returned from a pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca, via Turkey and according to him did not comply with the quarantine.
“If you ask me, anyone who generates this problem for himself should be killed. He not only gets sick, (but also infects) his family, his sisters, brothers, neighbors, “said Kadirov, in statements published by” The Moscow Times. “
How the agency collects Caucasian Knot, the head of Chechnya urged the residents of the republic to take the threat of infection more seriously and that death is a worthy punishment for infecting others.
The controversial leader of the Muslim-majority region is already accustomed to the international press by his bravado and emboldency, as well as his a taste for weapons and exotic animals. Kadirov is known for his human rights abuses on his territory, he is also suspected of trying to assassinate bloggers (even on European soil) who dare to criticize him.
He has also repeatedly pointed out his animosity against divorces. And the LGTBI population of Chechnya is one of the most punished in the world. A couple of years ago an anti-gay purge was carried out in which 100 people were arrested and more than three killed.
So it is not surprising that Kadirov has also announced that “people who spread false information about the coronavirus should be punished with community service.”
Lemon, honey and garlic
With the arrival of the Covid-19 in Chechnya, Kadirov, a loyal ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, ordered the closure of all restaurants, cafes and crowded places in the Russian semi-autonomous republic.
As recalled by “The Moscow Times”, in early March, Kadirov ruled out that he was concerned about the coronavirus and advised the population to drink lemon water and honey to strengthen your immune system and eat garlic to “purify the blood”.
