Poetry For Putin Contest Winner In Chechnya Wins An iPhone X
Published on November 24, 2017
How does Chechnya love Putin? Let us count the ways.
For the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik revolution, Chechnya’s autocratic leader Ramzan Kadyrov held a social media contest where participants compose poems about their beloved Russian President Vladimir Putin. Using the hashtag #ourpresidentputin, over 1,745 candidates entered the contest.
Third-grader Kheda Ibakhiyeva won the competition and received an iPhone X as a grand prize. The price of this phone might be expensive for some Russians, but the joy such poems must give Putin and his cronies is priceless.
