Kadyrov Wishes 'Superhero' Putin a Lifelong Presidency

Vladimir Putin and Ramzan Kadyrov Kremlin Press Service

The strongman leader of Russia’s Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov has weighed in on President Vladimir Putin’s flu, saying he wishes him health to rule over Russia for life. 

The Kremlin confirmed reports that Putin had caught a cold and limited his public appearances while continuing to work this week.

“I wish our President, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, long years of life so that he manages the state for life,” Kadyrov wrote on his Telegram channel early Friday.

“Someone is trying to concoct a political intrigue out of an ordinary cold, forgetting that while the president of Russia is not a superhuman, he’s still a superhero,” he said.

… 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.
