On May 26,  2017, Tass the Russian News Agency reported:

The Human Rights Watch published a report claiming that Chechnya’s Speaker Magomed Daudov was involved in persecution of non-traditional sexual orientation men

Chechen parliament’s Speaker Magomed Daudov has denied the Human Rights Watch’s allegation that he was involved in LGBT people’s persecution in that Russian North Caucasus region.”Yes, I am categorically against this as I believe this to be a sign of any nation’s decay!” Daudov wrote on his Instagram account. “That is why those corrupt ‘human rights’ zealots are trying to ascribe to me the manhandling of those whom we have never had! I want those ‘truth seekers’ to know that I do not raise my hand against defenseless people, even if I despise them.”

The Chechen parliament’s speaker said he was ready for an investigation into the case.

“I am ready for any inquiry as a citizen of Russia,” he said. “But I despise you as a Chechen man!”
