Pro-Kremlin Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, who rules his southern Russian region with an iron grip, Monday published a video showing opposition figures in the cross hairs of a sniper scope.The clip, posted on Kadyrov's popular Instagram page, features former Russian prime minister Mikhail Kasyanov -- who heads the Parnas opposition party -- alongside Vladimir Kara-Murza, the party's deputy leader, targeted in the sights.The remarks caused an uproar and several people publicly criticized Kadyrov, prompting Chechen authorities to organise a mass rally in support of their strongman leader.Two suspects are reportedly linked to an armed squad answerable to Kadyrov.
