Tepsurkaev links humiliation video with criticism of Chechen law enforcers

Salman Tepsurkaev has stated that he had recorded a video where he sits on a bottle, because he was threatened with death for insulting Chechen law enforcers on the 1ADAT Telegram channel. The authors of the channel have objected that they had not posted any offensive publications, and linked Tepsurkaev's statements with Chechen authorities' propaganda.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the video in which a naked man, who introduced himself as Salman Tepsurkaev, sits on a bottle as punishment for cooperating with the Telegram channel, which criticizes Chechen authorities, triggered resonance in Chechnya. In their turn, the authors of the 1ADAT channel stated that the moderator of their chat was kidnapped and publicly humiliated by law enforcers. The Human Rights Centre (HRC) "Memorial" has sent a statement to the police demanding to establish whether Tepsurkaev had been kidnapped.

In the new video, Tepsurkaev explained that he had filmed the video with a scene of self-humiliation, because "he had been spreading video clips discrediting the honour of other people's mothers and sisters."

Some users were outraged by the interpretation of Chechen customs, which was voiced by Tepsurkaev. "There have never been any instructions in the Chechen Adats to place someone on a bottle," the user liana_nevskaya_ has stated.

Others pointed to the inadmissibility of such humiliations for a Chechen. "It would be better if you let yourself be shot dead," the user kerimov.adam.95 has suggested.

Some commentators have treated what happened to Tepsurkaev as a deserved punishment. "You've got off easy. Earlier, they used to kill for this," the user deni_ataginsky has written.
