Kadyrov once again supports polygamy in Chechnya

Moscow, April 7, Interfax - The President of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov thinks there is nothing bad about polygamy.

"We have more women than men here, in Chechnya, and all women need to be settled in life. Our traditions and religion allow polygamy," Ramzan Kadyrov said in an interview published by Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily.

On the other hand, he says, "if a young girl or a divorced woman is promiscuous, her brother kills her and her man."

"Our traditions are very harsh. It is better for a woman to be the second or the third wife, than to be dead. I am sure, we need polygamy today. There is no such law, but I address everyone: those who have a possibility and a wish should take another wife," Kadyrov said.
