Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov

Mr Kadyrov, previously a rebel fighter who fought against the Russians, was appointed to carry out Mr Abramov's functions in his absence and began to stamp his own mark on Chechnya by introducing elements of Sharia law, which is derived from the teachings of the Koran. He has advocated polygamy and has clamped down on alcohol consumption and gambling.
