Chronology of events
UPD: 05/18/2015 "The wedding of the century" took place in Chechnya: a policeman married a 17-year-old
Yesterday, May 17, a demonstration wedding was held in Grozny for the head of the ROVD Najud Guchigov of the Nozhai-Yurt district and the 17-year-old resident of the village of Baitarka Louise (Kheda) Goylabieva The scandalousness of the “wedding of the century” was added by the fact that the 47-year-old Guchigov decided to make a minor girl his second wife.
While the Ukrainian media are savoring the event in detail, we recall that before Viktor Yanukovych came to power, marriages with girls who have reached the age of 14 were legalized in Ukraine.
The wedding was widely publicized in the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, where it was alleged that the Chechen policeman was trying to force Goilabiev to marry himself. 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 lezginka at the event, which he called "the wedding of the century." It is worth noting - he fulfilled the promise, and Novaya Gazeta announced the termination of work in Chechnya.
However, after the marriage, it turned out that the ceremony was not conducted by the registrar, but by a Chechen journalist Asya Belova, who works at the radio station “Grozny”. At the same time, the extremely dejected look of a pale bride, who looked solemnly at the floor, still raised questions about the voluntary nature of her deed.
