Chronology of events
UPD: 18/05/2015 "The wedding of the century" took place in Chechnya: a policeman married a 17-year-old
Yesterday, on May 17, in Grozny, a demonstrative wedding was held by the head of the ROVD of Najud Guchigov of Nozhai-Yurt district and a 17-year-old resident of Baytarka village of Louisa (Kheda) Goylabiyeva. Scandalous "wedding of the century" gave the fact that the 47-year-old Guchigov decided to make a minor girl a second wife.
While the Ukrainian media in every detail savor the event, we recall that before the coming to power of Viktor Yanukovych in Ukraine, marriages with girls who reached the age of 14 were legalized.
Wide publicity was given to the wedding in Novaya Gazeta, where it was alleged that a Chechen policeman was trying to force Goilabiev to marry her. After the intervention of the head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, it became clear that there was no coercion, and the girl and her relatives agreed to a wedding. Kadyrov himself accused the journalists of distorting the facts, promising to dance Lezginka at the event, which he called the "wedding of the century." It is worth noting that he fulfilled the promise, and Novaya Gazeta announced the termination of work in Chechnya.
However, after the wedding, it was found out that the ceremony was conducted not by a registrar, but by Chechen journalist Asya Belova, who works at the radio station "Grozny". At the same time, the extremely dejected kind of pale bride, the whole ceremony looked strictly on the floor, still raised questions about the voluntariness of her deed.
