"He beat him and did the right thing," Kadyrov commented on the video.

According to him, anyone who encroaches on any Holy Scripture and demonstratively burns it should be punished "severely."

Kadyrov also said that he was "proud of Adam's act" and "respects his choice."

In May, Chechnya's human rights ombudsman, Mansur Soltaev, said that a complaint by Nikita Zhuravel, who was detained for burning the Koran in Volgograd, that he had allegedly been beaten by the son of the head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, would be investigated.

On May 20, investigators opened a criminal case on the fact of insulting the religious feelings of believers because of the burning of the Koran in Volgograd. The detainee filmed the burning of the holy book on camera.

During the interrogation, he confessed that he acted on the instructions of the special services of Ukraine for a fee of 10 thousand rubles.

The Investigative Committee transferred the case to the Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee for Chechnya.

Later, the court arrested Zhuravel.
