Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov posted a parody video on Telegram in which he forced President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to sign Ukraine’s surrender to Russia.
The propaganda video, which is one minute and 18 seconds long, appeared on the Chechen warlord’s Telegram channel. In it, a look-alike of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy can be seen seated at a presidential table, dressed in his signature khaki T-shirt, while behind him, an off-frame man puts his hand on his shoulder.
Visibly frightened, the fake Zelensky reads a speech under the compulsion of the invisible hand.
“Dear citizens! I, the Acting President of Ukraine, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, approve the unconditional surrender of all our armed forces on land, sea and air,” says the actor, mimicking Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s voice.
Trembling, the doppelganger proclaims “the complete demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine” within a month before, under the pressure of the hand, “immediately!” corrected. As the actor turns to his executioner, his face is revealed: it is Ramzan Kadyrov, the Chechen president and henchman of Vladimir Putin.
Chechen war cry
Frightened, the fake Zelensky is then forced by Ramzan Kadyrov to sing the Chechen army’s battle cry.
“Akhmat Sila! Is that correct?”
The slogan in honor of Akhmad Kadyrov, Ramzan Kadyrov’s father, is regularly picked up by the Chechen President on the Internet. The video ends with the fake signature of the act of surrender, a Z, symbol of Vladimir Putin’s armed forces in Ukraine.
