In her video appeals to Ramzan Kadyrov and his mother Aimani Kadyrova, a woman who introduced herself as a resident of Chechnya, has requested to stop kidnappings and persecution of people in the Chechen Republic.

The video was posted on the Anti Kadyrov channel on YouTube. The author of the "Appeal of the Chechen woman to Kadyrov" asks the leader of Chechnya to stop "lawlessness" in the republic and voices accusations against him.

The woman asks Ramzan Kadyrov to "leave alone" young residents of Chechnya. She also requests his mother Aimani Kadyrova to influence her son. In particular, the woman mentions the disappearance of singer Zelimkhan Bakaev and asks to return him to his mother. She also asks Ramzan Kadyrov not to set up "the entire Chechen people against himself," the "Kavkaz.Realii" reports.

According to the calculations run by the "Caucasian Knot", in 2017, relatives of at least 51 residents of Chechnya reported their kidnappings. The numbers of victims included relatives of militants, people suspected of sympathizing with radical Islam, relatives and friends of people who joined Syrian militants, as well as men suspected of homosexuality.
