Chechnya’s autocratic leader Ramzan Kadyrov has reappeared in public for the first time in nearly a fortnight after unconfirmed reports that he had been flown to Moscow for treatment for coronavirus.
Kadyrov was filmed on Tuesday in Grozny, Chechnya’s capital, holding a government meeting on the region’s response to the pandemic and delivering 10 ambulances to local hospitals. Russian journalists noted what appeared to be a cannula on his right arm.
