Chechen blogger Tumso Abdurakhmanov published at least 20 messages received from residents of the republic.

On April 17, Tumso Abdurakhmanov began to publish complaints received from residents of Chechnya about the injustice of the authorities. Most complaints concern coercion of Chechen residents to take part in public works, subbotniks, rallies, or sports events.

A number of complaints also concern forced deductions from salaries. Authors of many reports sharply criticize Ramzan Kadyrov and his subordinates.

Earlier, residents of Chechnya have repeatedly retracted their complaints against the authorities. So, in November 2018, on the TV air, a resident of the Avtury village called a mistake his publication of a video, criticizing employees of a local hospital.
