Ramzan Kadyrov responds to version of his re-hospitalization

After the appearance of the information about his departure to Moscow for medical treatment, the leader of Chechnya has declared that he stays in the republic and continues working.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Ramzan Kadyrov did not appear in public in the period from May 15 to 26, until he held a meeting of the operational headquarters to combat the coronavirus infection. While speaking on the air on Instagram, Ramzan Kadyrov refuted a version of his illness and said that he was undergoing a planned physical examination in a Moscow hospital. In the evening on May 28, Elena Milashina, a correspondent of the newspaper "Novaya Gazeta", announced that Ramzan Kadyrov and his attending physician had arrived in Moscow. Users of social networks associated a new arrival of the leader of Chechnya to the Russian capital with his illness.

Today, on his Instagram page, Akhmed Dudaev, the assistant to the leader of Chechnya, the director of the "Grozny" ChGTRK (Chechen State TV and Radio Company), has posted a video in which Ramzan Kadyrov, dressed in a white T-shirt, claims to be at home, "at the workplace." "Akhmed, please tell them that I'm at home, I didn't land in Moscow. I'm at home, and I'm fine and healthy <...>. I am at the workplace, and I am working," Ramzan Kadyrov says and smiles.

In turn, Akhmed Dudaev accused authors of the posts about the Ramzan Kadyrov's movements of the absence of journalistic ethics.
