Social network users support Dagestani resident's answer to Kadyrov's threats

In his video appeal, a resident of Dagestan has criticized Ramzan Kadyrov for the arrival of Magomed Daudov, Speaker of the Chechen Parliament, to the Kizlyar District.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on June 10, a video appeared on the Internet of demolition of a Chechen road signpost installed on the border with Dagestan. On June 11, a protest action was held at one of the Chechen signposts in the outskirt of Kizlyar; and on June 12, it became known that two more similar signs were demolished in the border of Chechnya and the Tarumovka District of Dagestan.

On June 11, Ramzan Kadyrov commented on the situation with the demolition of the road sign, calling on residents of Chechnya and Dagestan "not to succumb to provocations." He promised "to break fingers and pull out tongues" of those who write offensive comments. These threats should be taken seriously, human rights defenders believe.

On June 13, a video was posted on the YouTube entitled "Harsh answer to Ramzan Kadyrov from Dagestan" – a response to Kadyrov's threats to commentators in social networks.

Most commentators have supported the video appeal of the resident of Dagestan. In their turn, residents of Chechnya reacted differently to the above video appeal.

    Dozens of houses in the Dagestani settlement of Vremenny are unfit for residence today, five years after the counter-terrorist operation (CTO), during which people had to abandon their houses.
