Putin ally Ramzan Kadyrov responds to health rumors

Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of Russia’s Chechen Republic, has responded to rumors that he was seriously ill with serious kidney problems.

Kadyrov, a staunch ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, shut down the rumors in a statement on his Telegram channel on Wednesday.

Earlier this month, Kazakh journalist Azamat Maytanov, citing his own sources, said Kadyrov could be terminally ill and that Dr. Yassin Ibrahim El-Shahat, head of the nephrology department at Abu Dhabi’s Burjeel Hospital, has arrived in Grozny. the capital of Chechnya to treat him.

“His specialty is in nephrology, dialysis, transplantation, glomerulonephritis and acute renal failure. Kadyrov is said to be in very poor health with serious kidney problems,” Maytanov wrote on his Telegram channel.

“For those who comfort themselves with the hope that I am terminally ill, I am sorry to upset you,” Kadyrov replied.

Kadyrov, head of state of the Chechen Republic since 2007, said he was “healthy” and “energetic”.

“I still play sports, go to the mountains, go hiking and solve important issues of the development of the republic,” he wrote.

Kadyrov added: “It seems to me that the writers of these fantasy versions need a doctor. Something with your psyche, guys, contact the specialists. Well, we will continue to destroy all evil spirits and continue to develop our republic.”

Maytanov, citing Akhmed Zakayev, the now-exiled former prime minister of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria, reported that Kadyrov had become “sick” and “addicted to drugs.” “[Zakayev] claims some kind of energy pills used to fuel the Chechen leader’s over-activity.”

Kadyrov has been vocal in support of Russia’s war in Ukraine. On March 2, he issued an ominous warning after Russia accused Ukrainian “saboteurs” of invading Russia’s southern Bryansk region and taking hostages.

“It is necessary to deal with all participants of the sortie to the Bryansk region in the strictest way, as harshly and even cruelly as possible,” Kadyrov wrote on his Telegram channel.

“Shoot to kill,” wrote Kadyrov. “Not only to deal with them, but also to bring their families who may be living in Russia to justice.”

“No flirting with terrorists. Don’t let them go, punish them on the spot and neutralize them forever, and then retaliate against Kiev. Just bomb all points directly or indirectly related to this attack,” he said. “And you don’t have to pay attention to the fact that there may be civilian objects nearby.”
