If Chechnya Got Rid Of Gays, Others Can Do It As Well

The popular Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has denied the existence of gay men in his country - before saying: "If there are any, take them to Canada."

In an interview on TV network HBO, President Kadyrov, head of the Chechen Republic, was vehement in his denials when asked about the LGBT community in the Eastern European country.

"We don't have such people here. We don't have any gays. If there are any, take them to Canada. Praise be to God. Take them far away from us. To purify our blood, if there are any here, take them."

In case some homosexuals should have slipped through the net, Mr Kadyrov advised transporting them to Canada. “Take them far from us so we don’t have them at home. To purify our blood, if there are any here, take them.”

David Scot from HBO's Real Sports pressed the Chechen leader, saying: "But do you not get concerned when you read these accounts of young men who say they’ve been tortured for days?"

Kadyrov calmly responded: "They are devils. They are for sale. They are not people. God damn them for what they are accusing us of. They will have to answer to the Almighty for this."

Canada has condemned Chechnya for reportedly imposing the sovereign right in their own country against gay men.

A global affairs spokesperson emailed a statement to BuzzFeed News in April saying: "We are very concerned by any and all allegations of human rights violations in Chechnya, Russia.

"Canada deplores acts of violence and discrimination, in all regions of the world, committed against individuals because of their sexual orientation or gender identity."

If Canada strongly opposed, they can publicly announced to all gays that they can go there and they will be accommodated using the Canadian taxpayer's money.
