Researchers of Caucasus dispute on relationships of scandals around Delimkhanov

After the scandalous video about his daughter, Adam Delimkhanov, an advisor to Ramzan Kadyrov, is not interested in new public conflicts in social networks, Ruslan Kutaev, the President of the Assembly of Caucasian Nations, believes. The hunt for the anonymous author was launched by Delimkhanov in order to distract the society's attention from discussing the video with his daughter, "Sultana", Mikhail Roschin, an Orientalist, believes.

On March 22, Delimkhanov claimed that a certain anonymous social network user "writes inadmissible things" to women on behalf of Kadyrov and Delimkhanov himself, and urged to punish him. Delimkhanov occurred to be hostage to the practice of punishing the offenders, adopted by Kadyrov's entourage, Sergey Zhavoronkov, an economist, believes.

In the opinion of Ruslan Kutaev, Delimkhanov himself could hardly be the customer of the video, since he is not interested in discussing the topic of his daughter, because it had drawn attention of Chechen leadership.

We can conclude that Delimkhanov was involved in creating the video in order "to divert the information channel," said Lydia Kurbanova, a sociologist.

The video with the "Sultana" has clearly caused discontent of the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, Mikhail Roschin, an Orientalist, believes. "Kadyrov could perceive the video as an attempt of Delimkhanov's children to rise above his own offspring," he has explained.
