Ramzan Kadyrov is “furious”, the Chechen leader’s horse is stolen

Police in the Czech Republic have launched a search after reports that a horse owned by the Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, was stolen.

The horse named Zazou, worth 19,000 euros, disappeared from the stable where it was kept on the outskirts of Prague last Friday, local police said in a statement. According to Czech media, Kadyrov had bought the horse in Dubai in 2012 and transferred it to a stable in the Czech Republic.

According to “The Guardian”, Zazou has won several important races and has provided over 1 million euros in income for his owners throughout his career. In 2014, the horse was banned from racing again, due to Kadyrov being sanctioned following Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

The Chechen leader is a close ally of Putin and strongly supports the war in Ukraine, even criticizing the Russian president for not being brutal enough.

On Wednesday, Kadyrov said in a Telegram message about the missing horse, “I’m worried that Zazou could end up in the wrong hands. How can this happen? Where was the security?” he said, adding that the real value of the horse was $10 million.

Czech media have reported that earlier Russian-speaking people tried to take the horses, saying they had been sent by Kadyrov himself to take them to Poland. According to a 2018 report by Transparency International, Kadyrov owned at least 128 racehorses, with which he earned over 1.5 million dollars in the period 2014-2018.
