The celebration was attended by the heads of the North Caucasus regions. The head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov showed the wedding party of his nephew Khamzat, his elder brother Zelimkhan’s son.
The wedding cortege consisted of dozens of cars and hundreds of guests were invited to the party.
According to Kadyrov, the heads of the North Caucasus regions, heads of federal departments and guests from Russian regions and other countries came to the party. The Minister for the North Caucasus Lev Kuznetsov also visited it.
'The wedding was organized according to Chechen folk traditions. All who wish to attend it are welcome, everyone is considered to be a welcome guest. It’s known that the Chechens organized races on one’s wedding day. Five rounds were held in the outskirts of Tsentaroy. About two hundred horses from all the regions of Chechnya and the North Caucasus took part there,' Kadyrov wrote.
On March 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on appointment of Ramzan Kadyrov as the acting head of the Chechen republic and expressed hope that he takes part in the September elections.
