Whoever said heads of state were supposed to lead by example? Ramzan Kadyrov certainly didn’t seem to care much about the fact that he is president of Chechnya when he decided to film himself driving at an eye-watering speed on one of the republic’s freeways.
This video, which he posted on his Instagram account alongside photos of boxers, footballers, frogs, and (less surprisingly) official ceremonies, shows his speedometer reaching 241 kilometres/hour as he sped down a nearly-empty freeway in the east of the republic.
