The Chechen warlord who is a close ally of Vladimir Putin is “seriously ill” and Ramzan Kadyrov is experiencing “symptoms of poisoning” and he is refusing to see a Russian doctor.
A leading surgeon has flown from the United Arab Emirates who has been spotted in Chechnya’s capital city of Grozny.
Kadyrov is a close confident of Putin and sent some 12,000 of his troops to fight in Ukraine in February 2022, and then in June and September that year additional battalions were sent in for the Russia leader.
It has been rumoured that the Chechen leader has “serious kidney problems” and a Kazakh journalist Azamat Maytanov, who has citied his own sources, claimed the Chechen warlord may be terminally ill and poisoning is the possible cause.

Maytanov wrote on Telegram, “There is information that the chief nephrologist of the UAE, Dr. Yasin Ibrahim El-Shahat, a well-known doctor with 30-year’s experience, has arrived in Grozny [the capital of Chechnya].
“His area of expertise lies in nephrology, dialysis, transplantation, glomerulonephritis, and acute renal failure.
“Kadyrov is allegedly very bad and has serious kidney problems.”
IS KADYROV, THE CHIPMUNK, EXPIRING?
A source well-connected in Russia 🇷🇺 tells me that sadistic despot Ramzan Kadyrov’s kidneys are failing.

Leonid Nevzlin who is an exiled Russian-Israeli businessman also agreed with the reports and said, “My sources confirm this.
“Kadyrov is treated in the UAE, and when he is in Grozny for a short time, a nephrologist from Abu Dhabi specially comes to him.
“Kadyrov clearly does not trust Russian doctors. There are reasons.
“My sources say that [problems with] kidneys are a symptom of poisoning and that’s what Kadyrov is afraid of.”

Kadyrov has been absent from public life the last month and his kidney illness could have also led to his recent “bloated” look.
