Ramzan Kadyrov, the Leader of Chechnya, called the allegation against him that he ordered an attack on a Georgian journalist foolish. He commented on Giorgi Gabunia’s case in his Telegram channel.
“Georgian media disseminated information saying that the Government of Chechnya ordered to assault a Georgian journalist. The truth, however, is that I am not interested in the slightest in some unlucky people. These people are just trying to be in the limelight and crave media attention. Georgian politics, like Ukrainian, is dead, and their governments are making some stupid statements instead of taking care of their people.
Gentlemen, trust me when I delegate a task to someone, they fulfill this task without it becoming public.
This quasi-journalist of yours, who sells himself as a representative of media, is hardly alive and suffers from megalomania. All reputable media outlets kick similar people out from their circles. However, I underscore, we have not forgotten how he insulted the state, people, and, accordingly, me, and he had better kneel and apologize”, - writes Kadyrov.
