Kadyrov's Defamation of Character Trial Opens

According to the New York Times, Ramzan Kadyrov's defamation of charcter trial against activist Oleg Orlov held its first hearing. Mr. Orlov stood by his accusation that Kadyrov was complicit in the murder of human rights activist Natalia Estemirova. He also accused Kadoucheov of creating an atmosphere in which Chechen officials, whether under orders from the president or not, can torture, kidnap and murder with impunity.

Ka-do-you-really-want-to-hurt-me-ov is seeking more than $300,000 in compensation for harm done to his reputation. Oh, and there's more. Earlier this week, Kadurak accused Estemirova of fabricating charges of rights violations, saying “she played no role in Chechnya.”

1. I didn't realize shaved apes could take people to court in Russia?
2. What good reputation did you have, Kadyrov?
3. How many golden guns can $300,000 buy?
4. The idea of Kadyrov and role playing scares the bejesus out of me!

Having fun with his name, are we? That'll land you in a Moscow court.

I really am just asking for it at this point.

It's such a big news day for Kadyrov "fans"; he's named his successor (democracy, what's that??) But that's not the worst part of the story--look who it is!
