Woman-critic of Kadyrov publicly retracts her words
An audio appeal of a resident of Chechnya, in which she criticized Ramzan Kadyrov for ways of collecting payments for housing and utility services, has acquired a wide resonance in the Chechen segment of the Internet. Then, the Chechen State TV and Radio Company "Grozny" featured a story about the meeting of the author of the appeal with Kadyrov, at which she retracted her words.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Kadyrov demanded to pay all the debts accrued in 2015 for using electricity, water and gas before January 17, 2016. Checks are conducted throughout the republic, as a result of which malicious non-payers are disconnected from power supplies.
The above woman complained about forced deductions from wages and threats of dismissal for refusing to prepay the housing and utility services. According to her story, ordinary residents of Chechnya are suffering from the difficult economic situation, while officials and members of Kadyrov retinue live in luxury. She treated the campaigns of giving out expensive gifts and support of charitable actions outside the republic as "window dressing".
After that, Internet users reported that the author of the appeal was severely beaten.
On December 18, the TV Channel "Grozny" featured a story about Kadyrov's meeting with the author of the appeal – Aishat Inaeva, a resident of the Nadterechny District.
At the meeting, Kadyrov asked the woman to give particular facts of his order to deduct money from wages and "engagement in window dressing." He also said that every year Chechnya pays more than a billion roubles to residents who have privileges.
The information about Inaeva's beating was refuted by Aza Djankhotova, Director of the Social Rehabilitation Centre for Minors in the village of Gvardeiskoe, where Inaeva works as an educator.
