Kadyrov promises to break fingers for offensive comments

Ramzan Kadyrov has commented on the situation with the demolition of the road sign in the outskirt of Kizlyar. He called on residents of Chechnya and Dagestan "not to succumb to provocations," and promised "to break fingers and tear out tongues" of those who write offensive comments.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on June 10, a video appeared on the Internet, in which young people dismantled a road signpost reading "Shelkovskoy District" installed in the outskirt of Kizlyar. The signs will be reinstalled, said Magomed Daudov, Speaker of the Chechen Parliament. On June 11, townspeople gathered for a rally at one of the signposts indicating Chechnya; from 10 to 15 people were detained.

Kadyrov has urged, live on his Instagram channel, residents of both republics not to succumb to provocations.

"We're guarding the border and our villages. Imagine that we'll come to Dagestan and begin commanding there," he said.

"If you insult my clan, my family and my people – this is most important for me. Therefore, you follow your language, watch your fingers, otherwise we will break your fingers and tear out your tongue – keep it in mind," he has concluded.

In November 2018, Kadyrov called for detaining opponents of the Ingush-Chechen border agreement.
