UPD: 05/18/2015 “The wedding of the century” took place in Chechnya: a policeman married a 17-year-old
Yesterday, May 17, in Grozny, a demonstration wedding of the head of the police department, Najud Guchigov, Nozhai-Yurt district, and 17-year-old resident of the village of Baytarki, Louise (Kheda) Goylabieva, took place. The scandalous “wedding of the century” was given by the fact that the 47-year-old Guchigov decided to make the minor girl his second wife.
While the Ukrainian media relish the event in every detail, we recall that prior to Viktor Yanukovych's coming to power in Ukraine, marriages with girls who had reached the age of 14 were legalized.
The wedding was widely publicized in publications in the Novaya Gazeta, which claimed that a Chechen police officer was trying to force Goylabieva to marry herself. After the intervention of the head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, it turned out that there was no coercion, and the girl and her relatives agreed to the wedding. Kadyrov himself accused journalists of distorting the facts, promising to dance a lezginka at an event that 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 turned out that the ceremony was not led by a registry office employee, but by the Chechen journalist Asya Belova, working at the Grozny radio station. At the same time, the extremely dejected look of the pale bride, who looked at the entire ceremony strictly on the floor, still raised questions about the voluntariness of her act.

According to him, the Russian troops are divided into separate battalion-tactical groups, which can both independently accomplish combat missions and act as part of other groups of the Russian armed forces.
Seleznev also noted that the drawn troops play the role of a psychological factor, since, in his opinion, the Kremlin will not dare to openly invade the Ukrainian-controlled border section.
