Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov (poster in top left) is a staunch supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin, but both men have been criticized by human rights groups. Tens of thousands of people took part in a state-sponsored rally in Chechnya’s capital Grozny on Jan. 22, with many holding posters of Kadyrov, Putin (right), and Kadyrov’s late father, Akhmad Kadyrov (center).
