“I sincerely appreciate people with their own vision of the situation and unshakable will. Thanks to him for this. I respect the character and the absence of double standards!”, - Kadyrov said on his Telegram channel.
“Friends, jokes are jokes, but the character and sober unambiguous position of any person must be recognized”, - the head of Chechnya believes.
The reason for Kadyrov's admiration was Musk's refusal to block Russian sites in Starlink. This became known on March 5. The American businessman declared the need to maintain freedom of speech.
“We will not do this, except at gunpoint. I'm sorry, but I absolutely support freedom of speech", - Musk is quoted as saying by the Chechen leader.
Earlier, the American businessman also challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to a duel.
“Musk, I hope you were joking about my President after all”, - Kadyrov writes.
This is not the first time the head of Chechnya has addressed an American businessman. After Musk's tweet with a challenge to a duel, Kadyrov stated that they were in different weight categories. The head of Chechnya offered the American to undergo special training in Chechnya.
“Therefore, you need to pump up in order to turn from gentle Elona into brutal Elona. I propose to be trained in several centers in the Chechen Republic”, - Kadyrov wrote on March 14.
Musk has already responded to this message by signing one of the tweets as “Ilona” and promising to use only his left hand in a duel with Putin. Musk also changed his Twitter username to Elona Mask.
