Ingush Head hates Instagram but wants to keep abreast of times
Yunus-bek Yevkurov said posting on social media is a must if you want to "keep abreast of the times" and tell everyone about the republic’s achievements and traditions.
Yunus-bek Yevkurov, the Head of the Russian Republic of Ingushetia said in an interview with RIA Novosti that he does “not like Instagram in the slightest”, but this "must be done nevertheless". He is reportedly the one making all the posts on social networks.
Yevkurov said he used social media to tell everyone about the republic’s achievements and traditions, to convey the national flavor and to ensure that more people know about the republic. The Ingush head also said he might create accounts in other networks as well, since it is important to “keep abreast of the times”. At present, "80 percent of people around the world read news and get information via social networks," he added.
168k people follow Yevkurov on Instagram. The account has posted over 4.5k pictures so far. The head of Ingushetia also has pages on Facebook, Twitter, VKontakte and Odnoklassniki (Classmates).

It has been more than a month since Oleg appealed to the Investigative Committee with a statement, but the authorities are inactive – Kozlovsky was not even called in for questioning.
