The head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov assured the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, that is no persecution of gays in his country. The Kremlin has no reason not to believe the head of Chechnya, said the press-Secretary of Russian leader Dmitry Peskov.
Within the last working meeting of Putin and Kadyrov had discussed media reports about the persecution of homosexuals in Chechnya. The head of the Republic has named these statements slander, noting that the information about the persecution against representatives of nontraditional sexual orientation isn’t true. According to Peskov, the Chechen leader said that the citizens of his region also agree with the point of view of the government, affirming that stated in the media is fiction.
Previously also reported that in the framework of last meetings of Putin and Kadyrov discussed the details of the attack on employees of law enforcement bodies in Chechnya. During a conversation with the head of Chechnya, the Russian President noted that the incident showed that «the issues are not still apparently solved.»
