Chechens apologize for fellow countrymen's behaviour in Moscow
By refusing to pay for a trip in a Moscow taxi, young Chechens disgraced their nation, YouTube users believe. In social networks, other Chechens have apologized for their fellow countrymen and expressed their readiness to pay the taxi driver for them.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Chechen authorities had returned three young people to the republic and convinced them to apologize publicly for refusing to pay for their taxi travel in Moscow. This was reported by the "Grozny" ChGTRK (Chechen State TV and Radio Company) on March 31. Adam Delimkhanov, a State Duma MP has also apologized for the behaviour of his fellow countrymen.
The complaint of the taxi driver Rafis Kamaletdinov against his Chechen clients who did not pay for using the taxi was posted on his YouTube channel back on December 19, 2019. By 8:20 p.m. on April 1, this video had collected more than 597,000 pageviews.
"I'm a Chechen, and I wouldn't allow myself to act like that. I'm ashamed for them, honestly. Send me the card number, and I'll pay for them," the user, Mukhyammad Nokhcho, wrote in his comment to the video.
"Brother, I am a Chechen myself, and I am ashamed of them. I swear, not every one of us is like that," the user, Maga Maga, has assured.
