Kadyrov Rep Awarded Prize

Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov's spokesman won a top journalism prize over the weekend at the seventh International Golden Quill awards, RIA-Novosti reported.

The awards are dedicated to Akhmat-Khadzhi Kadyrov, Chechnya's first president and father of the republic's current head, Ramzan Kadyrov.

Twenty-nine prizes were given out to journalists from various Russian regions, while Alvi Karimov, a former Interfax reporter who has worked as Kadyrov's spokesman since 2009, won the main prize for his television program "Dialogues" on state-owned Grozny TV.

Kadyrov himself picked up an award for "contribution to the development of the country's journalism" at the award ceremony, which took place in the Chechen capital Grozny.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
