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.

According to this video, Kadyrov is just a Chechen version of Vladimir Putin – despotic, not quite in accordance with international laws and fit

Putin and Kaderovs have resolved the chechan issue to a very large extent and that has not gone well with many of Russia's opponents.

Chechans and Russians suffered great losses both in terms of lives and property in the wars in which Chechans were supplied enough weapons and support by the US to keep the fight going on but not enough so that they can defeat the Russians. This would keep the war going on for eternity with both Russians and Chechans destroying each other.

Putin understood the western plans and effectively countered it by installing his loyal Chechan leaders and helping them with lot of wealth(still a small fraction of what would be needed if the Russians had to keep fighting the Chechans) and autonomy(to imlement their own laws) which chechan loyalist used to win over chechan hearts.

The result-
-Massive economic growth and reconstructive in Chechanya which has enabled reconciliation and prevented Chechans from joining militant groups for Independence.
As they have development and autonomy to have their own laws they dont see any need for Independence.

-Russian solders need not stay in Chechanya as Putin loyalists take care of any rebellion.

It is a win-win situation for both Russians and Chechans.

Things will keep improving unless the Chechans or Russians get influenced by Western propoganda and start fighting each other again.

How Pakistan's cricket superstar became Ramzan Kadyrov: brutal tyrant, 2 months ago   08:02

Why the world is watching Imran Khan.
Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO

Imran Khan was sworn in as Pakistan’s new prime minister on August 18, but he is no ordinary politician. Before rising to power, he was a dashing cricket superstar. He lead the Pakistani cricket team to victory in the 1992 World Cup against England and became a global celebrity. He settled in England, where his popularity grew and where he was known as a bachelor.

He eventually resettled in Pakistan, where he shed his lady’s-man image and established the political career that lead him to become the head of Pakistan’s government. His strong anti-corruption message and opposition to the political dynasties that have ruled Pakistan for decades helped him ascend to power. But many have accused him of also getting help from Pakistan’s most powerful authority: the military. As Khan starts his tenure, we explore his rise to power and how Pakistan’s political climate might affect his term as prime minister.
