The surge in inquiries about the possible illness of Ramzan Kadyrov is associated with a post by Chechen opposition blogger Tumso Abdurakhmanov.
On July 1, 2023, Abdurakhmanov wrote that “information is coming in that Kadyrov is dying and is no longer talking.”
“The kidneys have completely failed, dialysis does not help. It is possible that these are his last days,” Abdurakhmanov said.
At the same time, on July 2, 2023, Abdurakhmanov commented on a new video with Ramzan Kadyrov.
“Kadyrov finally showed himself, along with Delimkhanova. Kadyrov held a short live broadcast together with Delimkhanov, which was intended to demonstrate that they are both alive and well,” Abdurakhmanov said.
“Well, all the questions about being alive have been removed (especially on Delimkhanov, information about his death was distributed by Ukrainian TG channels), but the appearance and breathing of Kadyrov speak of serious health problems. Apparently, it was precisely because of his state of health that Kadyrov did not show himself all these days and did not even congratulate the people on the Eid al-Adha holiday. Well, Kadyrov, get better),” he added.
