Kadyrov’s Muslim Chechnya Celebrates the New Year

According to the website Kavkaz-Uzel, the puppet regime in the Russian occupied Chechen Republic of Ichkeria spent more than 500,000 Euro for new years celebrations.

The main festivities related to the New Year celebrations took place in the capital, Grozny. A big tree was erected in the city center, close to Europe’s biggest mosque on December 25th. Concerts and Christmas shows were held in the city. On New Year’s Eve, a 15 minute long laser show was held. Maybe the most interesting thing during the celebrations was about snow. Due to warm weather in the country, there was no snow and so snow was brought to the city center with trucks by the order of puppet regime head, Ramzan Kadyrov.

“We spent around 20 million rubles (more than 500,000 Euro) for the festivities. This money went to the decoration of the streets and facades of houses, festive illumination and leisure activities for children,” said a puppet officer.

Let us remind you that unemployment in Chechnya is at more than 80% and there is a lack of major health care institutions. Also, it must be noted that Islam forbids the celebration of New Years, however Kadyrov, who is known for his strict practices, like dress codes for women, ordered the organization of this big New Year’s celebration.
