The head of Chechnya believes that “Fedor Vladimirovich realized the mistake”, explaining that Emelianenko was removed from your page in Instagram “photo boy.” “We need to be tolerant to each other, not to get personal when discussing issues of public importance. Us and so surrounds too unfriendly world,” — wrote Kadyrov.

Experience, authority and ability of such people should not be squandered. They must serve the Fatherland, the consolidation of our society in the name of Russia!”, — concluded the head of Chechnya.

The head of Chechnya said that “to put photos of other children and provoke beneath unflattering comments is a direct violation of ethics and morality“. Later, Emelianenko took the photo with the children, putting in place her own photos.
