Chechen teen apologizes for throwing can at other kids on bus
According to the teenager, his parents and the republic leadership reprimanded him.
The Chechen who had thrown a drink can at a kid saying “Akhmat sila” (Akhmat is power”) and videotaped it, offered a public apology for what he had done. He admitted he had been wrong and acted dishonorably.
“I would like to apologize for my shameful deed on the bus; throwing a can at the kids sitting in front of me and saying: “Akhmat sila”. I was reprimanded severely by the republic leadership and my parents. Once again, I want to apologize for the dishonorable act,” he said in a new video.
Earlier, the teenager had posted the video with that very “dishonorable act”, which caused a public outcry in Chechnya and reached the republic’s head, Ramzan Kadyrov. He ordered that the teenager immediately come to Grozny with his parents. Otherwise, Kadyrov promised that he would be "found in a matter of hours."
The region head also stressed that the actions of the Chechen kid had nothing to do with the Akhmat club, “thousands of young people who have the right to say ‘Akhmat sila’, given their exemplary behavior, excellent school performance, and achievements in sports”.
Artur Tsybikov, who refers to himself as Deputy Supreme Shaman of Russia, is trying to justify the Zhen Tengery Yaba ritual, which caused public outrage. He noted that the head of Chechnya does the same every year, burning five camels.
After the Colonel Zakharchenko scandal, Andrey Kurnosenko and some of his colleagues were told that they were not fit for the job. However, the head of the Economic Security and Anti-Corruption Department retained his post.
