Head of Russia’s Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov has offered an invitation to the region to US President Joe Biden in response to his recent comments about LGBTQ rights in Chechnya, Kadyrov wrote on his Telegram channel.
On Tuesday, Biden addressed the UNGA session, calling on the international community to join forces to protect rights of sexual minorities around the world, separately mentioning Chechnya to Cameroon.
“Biden, who shamefully returned troops from Afghanistan, suddenly started mentioning Chechnya. We are still yet to get over his certain ridiculous statements and actions as president of the US and he has already cheered us up with new strange and unreasonable statements. Biden made such an absurd statement that I can only invite his to our region in response,” Kadyrov wrote.
Ramzan Kadyrov, leader of Chechnya, has garnered 99.7% of the votes after processing 100% of the balloting results, according to the information furnished by the Central Election Commission.
Isa Khadzhimuradov, nominated by the A Just Russia – Patriots – For Truth party, got 0.15% of the vote, while Khalid Nakayev, the Communist Party’s candidate obtained 0.12%.
To win, a gubernatorial candidate must clinch at least 50% plus one vote.
On September 17-19, Russia’s Chechen Republic held elections for the head of the region, State Duma legislators, the republic’s parliament of the fifth convocation, and lawmakers to representative bodies of municipalities.
