Suleimanov's video sows doubts about his words about work in Grozny
The hospital corridor, where a video was filmed with Elkhan Suleimanov, the head of the Ministry of Public Health (MPH) of Chechnya, looks like the interior of a hospital in Moscow, which does not exclude that the minister is in Russian capital, some media have suggested.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on May 21, a medical source said that Ramzan Kadyrov was under doctors' supervision because of suspected coronavirus.
The video entitled "Exposing Chechen Minister of Public Health" was posted on the 1ADAT YouTube channel which has 150 subscribers. "We've investigated the video posts by Elkhan (Suleimanov), where he walks along the corridors of a hospital. We found the interior very strange, because we have no such hospital in Chechnya," the video annotation says. It also reports that a video with the same interior had been posted in the official Instagram page of the Central Clinical Hospital of Moscow.
"He's not in Grozny, dealing, as he stated with problems of coronavirus patients; he is sitting with Ramzan in the Kremlin hospital. Apparently from there he appears on air with his daily statistics," the user George Gordon has suggested in his comment to the video.
The assumptions about Kadyrov's whereabouts are made in connection with the information that Elkhan Suleimanov and the head of Chechnya were hospitalized "together."
