Ramzan Kadyrov Says There are No Gay Men in Chechnya - But If There Are They Should be Deported to Canada
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has denied the existence of gay men in his country - before saying: "If there are any, take them to Canada.” During an interview on TV network HBO, Mr Kadyrov, head of the Chechen Republic, was vehement in his denials when asked about the LGBT community in the Eastern European country. David Scott, from HBO’s Real Sports, asked the 40-year-old head of state: “I wanted to ask you about the alleged roundup, abduction, and torture of gay men in the Republic. What, Mr President, do you want to say about that?” “This is nonsense,” he said in reply.
