    Hundreds of videos have been posted on social media begging the Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, to stay in power after he threatened to stand down when his term ends in April.

    Speaking the 39-year-old said he had no desire to continue as leader and that “the nation’s leadership needs to find another person so that my name isn’t used against my people”

    Since then a public campaign voicing support and adoration for the leader has gained momentum, with many posts featuring crying children — amid suggestions the campaign has been endorsed or instigated by government officials.

    On Instagram – which Kadyrov uses to issue various edicts and announcements – a Russian-language hashtag that translates as “Ramzan don’t go” had been used on more than 7,000 posts as of 1 March.
