Meet the Chechen leader allegedly torturing gay people.

Ramzan Kadyrov is the leader of Chechnya. He is a Putin proxy that has been in charge of the Russian republic since 2007. Recent reports have alleged that Kadyrov is systematically identifying and persecuting homosexual Chechen citizens. Many have fled the country in fear and have given interviews detailing his plans to kidnap, torture, and kill gay people. Despite the dark revelations, Kadyrov has continued to maintain an upbeat profile on Instagram, where he is a prolific user. Post by post, Kadyrov has used the social media platform to carefully craft a public image that distracts from his sinister behavior. Online he tends to post pictures of animals, selfies with friends, sports clips, and glamorous footage of Grozny, the capital of Chechnya. On the other hand, he also features imagery that hints at the darker aspects of his leadership. Kadyrov has a personal militia, called the “Kadyrovtsy”, and in various posts they can be seen shooting guns, performing training exercises, and practicing combat tactics. In doing so, he implies a clear threat to anyone who chooses to cross the Chechen leader. Two other common subjects are his religious faith and Vladimir Putin. Kadyrov is a devout Muslim and he leverages his faith to promote a strict interpretation of Islam: one that limits the role of women and endorses cruel punishment. He is also a fervent supporter of Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia. By featuring Putin in his posts, Kadyrov makes his deference to the Russian leader explicit. That is because Putin helped bring Kadyrov to power and affirms the authority of his Chechen subordinate. As long as Kadyrov maintains stability in the North Caucasus, Putin will continue to protect Kadyrov. That being said, if anyone is going to hold Kadyrov responsible for the troubling accusations about gay persecution, it will be Vladimir Putin. The more the world takes notice, the more Putin will have to, as well.

Well When His Father was Assainated VVP was the first one to help him and I will always respect him. I didn't like it when He threatened me. But it was a misunderstanding I heard. But He is very lucky to have Vladimir Putin and the PRIVILEGE TO HAVE A FATHER FIGURE. 🏴‍☠️☠️ I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH RAMZIN K.

The first chechen war was a russian defeat. After chechen militias attacked the Republic Dagestan and were defeated, russia started the second war and won.

Does anyone find it strange that Putin uses an translator earpiece with Angela Merkel, when he speaks fluently in German?

Hey Vox, when you will do a film about Bush and Blair being criminals of war because of the WMD lies that result in over 500,000 deaths, and about madeleine Albright sanctions on Iraq that resulted in 500,000 deqsd children and the CIA Black sites that tortured to death people then we will understand Kadirov is a lot less criminal than they are....

These are Vox's interpretation of him. Just showing some movie scenes to say chechens are bad are also made in hollywoods. VOX has a history of creating hatred towards muslims.

6. Spain & Morocco https://ufl.ae/videow/BO_Oyk2K2Ji)

The sixth and last Vox Borders episode deals with a border between Morocco and Spain. The journey to asylum is never easy. And perhaps no one knows this better than would-be African migrants to the European Union. In North Africa, on the border of Morocco, there's a Spanish town called Melilla. It's technically Europe.

So undocumented migrants and refugees, asylum seekers, wait in limbo for a chance to scale the fence and apply for asylum in Europe. It's the first of many, many hurdles. And it's a tall one.
