Russia says it has no information on the health of Ramzan Kadyrov after reports suggested the Chechen leader was sick.
Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday: “We have no information on this.”
“In any case, the presidential administration can hardly give out health certificates, so we have nothing to tell you here.”
Peskov made the remarks after unconfirmed reports on social media said Kadyrov was in a coma.
After the rumours began to spread, two videos were released on Sunday of Kadyrov at an unidentified location.
In the first, he is seen smiling while on a stroll. In the second, he recommends people play sports. He is heard speaking Chechen and Russian.
