The President of Chechnya has denied that gay people exist in his Republic after claims emerged that the region had opened concentration camps for homosexuals.

President Razman Kadyrov, who is a key ally of Vladimir Putin, was accused of ordering a clampdown on homosexuals earlier this year when Chechen police rounded up more than 100 men suspected of being gay and killed three.

Kadyrov, an MMA fighter and father-of-ten who has been accused of ordering extra-judicial killings in the past, has now been interviewed by David Scott, who hosts HBO’s investigative sports news programme,Real Sports.

Gumbel questioned Kadyrov on a range of topics including the alleged round-up, abduction and torture of gay men in the Republic – part of Vladimir Putin’s empire – as well Russia’s relationship with the US.

Kadyrov denied the existence of any gay people in his Republic, described people who had accused him of rounding homosexuals up as ‘devils’, and threatened to automatically deploy nuclear weapons if his government is overthrown.

The President responded to Gumbel’s questioning by looking out to his audience and laughing.

He said (in a translation by HBO): ‘Why did he come here? What’s the point of these questions?’

He then turned back to Scott and said: ‘This is nonsense. We don’t have those kinds of people here. We don’t have any gays.
