Retaliation practice forces Chechen minister to hunt for anonymous Internet user
The Caucasian mentality requires Adam Delimkhanov, the advisor to Ramzan Kadyrov, to prove his masculinity and look for an anonymous Internet user who addresses women on social networks on behalf of the Chechen authorities, says Yuri Yefimov, a conflict expert. Adam Delimkhanov appeared to be a hostage to the practice aimed at punishing offenders, adopted by Ramzan Kadyrov and his subordinates, economist Sergey Zhavoronkov believes.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported Adam Delimkhanov has stated that a certain user "writes inadmissible things on the social network" and addresses them to women on behalf of Ramzan Kadyrov and Adam Delimkhanov himself. The advisor to the leader of Chechnya called on to punish the above-mentioned social network user. The appeal of Adam Delimkhanov will provoke a "witch-hunt" in the republic, residents of Chechnya suggest.
Adam Delimkhanov called on to punish an anonymous Internet user to divert people's attention from a scandalous video shot on behalf of his daughter, Instagram users suggest. In the video, criticized in social networks, the girl is called the "sultana of the sun and the moon."
An independent search for the author of fake Internet messages is not quite relevant to the status of the State Duma member, believes Yuri Yefimov, a conflict expert. He notes that in this situation, Adam Delimkhanov positions himself primarily as a man, and not as an official.
Anonymous messages themselves threaten the image of Adam Delimkhanov as an official, political analyst Alexei Malashenko believes.
The calls to find and punish the anonymous Internet user have no prospects and are not relevant to the high rank of Adam Delimkhanov, but the official has to act in accordance with the paradigm set by the leader of Chechnya, emphasizes economist Sergey Zhavoronkov. According to him, there is no certainty that the Adam Delimkhanov's claims to the anonymous Internet user are justified.
