Kadyrov Removes ‘Stolen’ Picture of Sheep from Instagram

From Echo Moskvy:

Photo of sheep grazing in the mountains removed from Ramzan Kadyrov‘s Instagram

The day before, Dutch photographer Herbert Schröer accused the Chechen leader of stealing his picture, reports Grani.ru. Kadyrov‘s mountain landscape, incidentally taken in the Alps, not the Caucasus, was published without attribution. Schröer asked himself yesterday “should I defend my rights?”. Today, the picture is no longer on Kadyrov‘s Instagram.

Comments from Echo Moskvy:


Beautiful sheep, great scenery. How can you help yourself from stealing it?


Who’s decided that they’re grazing? The sheep are just lying down and relaxing.


The sheep aren’t the same, and neither are the mountains. It’s not idyllic there at all.


There’s an old saying: “A horse has been stolen? Go look for it in Chechnya!”


Which of these is Mr. Kadyrov?)


Ah, he doesn’t care… the Alps, the Andes, the Caucasus. There are sheep – that means it’s home.


The bloke just saw his countrymen in the picture and pinched the photo.

The fight against pornography in action.


Village idiot.


Nice one, Dutchman! Don’t give way to this anti-gay-propaganda campaigner!


Gay little thief.


The Chechens are stealing other people’s livestock again. You can’t punish them – it’s an age-old tradition for them…


The Russian budget isn’t enough [for him to steal]. he’s moved on to other people’s photos now too…
