The strongman leader of Russia's Chechnya region Ramzan Kadyrov Tuesday threatened to eradicate the "enemy" opposition in Russia, raising more concerns about the fate of Kremlin critics and independent media in the country.The remarks caused a furor and several people publicly criticized Kadyrov, with one local lawmaker in Siberia Konstantin Senchenko calling the Chechen strongman "the shame of Russia" for amassing vast personal wealth and abusing his political post.Chechens are also thought to be behind the murder of opposition critic Boris Nemtsov who was gunned down last February next to the Kremlin, and two suspects are reportedly linked to an armed squad answerable to Kadyrov.
