Kadyrov sends scandalous video hero to clean streets

The Chechen, who threw a metal can at metro passengers in Moscow with the words "Akhmat is power!" has urgently arrived in Grozny. In the Chechen capital, the young man was immediately employed: he would clean the streets and plant flowers, said Ramzan Kadyrov.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on October 10, a video appeared in the Internet, in which a man threw a can into Moscow metro passengers sitting opposite him with the words: "Akhmat is power!" This angered the head of Chechnya; who demanded public apologies from the young man, and ordered to come to him with his parents by the "nearest flight."

"The young hero of the yesterday's Moscow incident urgently arrived in Grozny. He turned out to be Turpal Khasiev, a resident of the village of Avtury, Shali District," the head of Chechnya wrote in his Telegram channel today.

According to Kadyrov, today, Turpal Khasiev, as well as his father and brothers, took part in one of the programmes of the ChGTRK (Chechen State TV and Radio Company) "Grozny".

"Turpal Khasiev said on air that he had left for Moscow on October 7 to get a job. So that he would not bother himself looking for job, the issue of his employment was settled on the spot. From now on, Turpal will work to improve the city by cleaning streets and planting flowers and saplings, and watering them in time," Mr Kadyrov said in his message.

He noted that the young man "was bitterly regretting his unworthy behaviour in Moscow" and "tearfully apologized" to the passenger, at whom he threw a metal can from some drink.
