Putin Ally gifted Teenage Son Ukrainian prisoners of war in disturbing video

Video reportedly shows Russian Chechen Republic leader Ramzan Kadyrov receiving Ukrainian prisoners of war (POWs) from his teenage son.

The footage was shared on Twitter on Friday by Alex Kokcharov, a London-based risk analyst who focuses on Russia and Ukraine.

“In this video from #Grozny, #Chechnya, Southern Russia, the 16-year-old son of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov “gifts” his father three Ukrainian POWs captured in #Ukraine. If this is not a theater but a real situation, this is modern slavery,” Kokcharov tweeted.

The video appears to show Russian soldiers leading the prisoners towards Kadyrov, a staunch supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The prisoners, identified as Ukrainians, are bent over with masks and their hands tied behind their backs.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, an Illinois Republican, retweeted the footage Friday and wrote, “demons.” Kinzinger is one of the most vocal pro-Ukraine supporters in the US Congress, regularly tweeting updates about the war and attacking critics of NATO’s continued support for Kyiv.

news week could not verify the authenticity of the video and has contacted the foreign ministries of Ukraine and Russia for comments.

On Friday, a lawyer told the Caucasian Knot, a news outlet covering the Caucasus region, that another video of Kadyrov reportedly speaking to prisoners of war appears to violate the prisoners’ rights.

“Prisoners of war should give their written consent to film the video and make it publicly available,” attorney Maxim Grebenyuk told the outlet. He added that such prisoners should only be transported when accompanied by military police.

“The state is responsible for prisoners of war from the moment of their arrest – responsible for their life, conditions of detention and health … They must be transported in a military police convoy,” said Valentina Melnikova, head of the Union of Soldiers’ Committees « Mothers, said the Caucasian Node.

Earlier this week, Kadyrov said his three teenage sons fought in the war in Ukraine.

In a Telegram post, Kadyrov said his sons Akhmat, 16, Eli, 15, and Adam, 14, “visited the contact line where fierce fighting with Ukrainian nationalists is currently taking place.”

A video he posted to the social media platform reportedly shows the teenagers shooting and posing with guns on the front line. Earlier this month, the Chechen leader said that age “should not interfere with the education of defenders of our fatherland.”

“I have always believed that the main goal of every father is to instill piety in his sons and teach them to protect the family, the people, the Fatherland … It’s time to show yourself in a real fight, and this is her wish, I just salute [it],” he added.
