@BH The oppression of LGBTQIA+ people in Chechnya is an amplification of what is happening in Russia, which is also a horror show. Kadyrov is Putin's hand picked strong man to fight the local rebels in this centuries old conflict, both men use anti-LGBTQIA+ bigotry and brutality for political purposes.

Kadyrov's father switched sides to join with the Russian gov during the second Chechen War (one of those conflicts where there actually isn't a "good guy" side, tbh). So Ramzan sorta inherited his job once he turned 30 (they didn't have to change the age requirement like Syria did for Bashar).

There's almost a category of current conflicts in the world built upon how the Soviet Union drew internal boundaries (who got what, who didn't get their own turf, so on)..
