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 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.
