Song about Kadyrov, lamenting for Russian national team, becomes a hit

A satirical song about the failure of the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, as the coach of the Russian national football team, scored more than 1.7 million views within 24 hours. According to the author, an actor Semyon Slepakov, even the tough methods practiced in Chechnya will not be able to help the team at the FIFA World Cup. At the end of the song, the weeping Kadyrov admits that he failed to cope with the mission assigned to him by Vladimir Putin.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the FIFA World Cup-2018 will be held in Russia from June 14 to July 15.

The song "Olé-Olé-Olé!" was posted by Semyon Slepakov, a singer, a former participant of a KVN team and one of the participants of the "Our Russia" project on the TNT TV Channel, on the YouTube.

"Who will make us World Champions? Ramzan Kadyrov is my proposal," says the song.

"For you not to distract by your smartphones, I will now take away all your thumbs," Slepakov sang, hinting at cutting off footballers fingers.

However, according to the song, the Russian team lost.

In their comments, YouTube users expressed the opinion that the authorities of Chechnya may dislike the song, and the author will be forced to apologize.

Residents of Chechnya have repeatedly refused from their statements and complaints addressed to Kadyrov and were forced to apologize to him.
