Kadyrov's officials have long denied the existence of gay men in Chechnya, just as they have repeatedly denied report of the purge e all while obstructing the official investigation into it. "We don't have those kinds of people here". "We don't have any gays".

"This is nonsense", said Ramzan Kadyrov during an interview that is scheduled to air on HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" on July 18.

When asked whether he is troubled by the accounts, Kadyrov replied: "They are devils". They are not people. Kadyrov had long enjoyed the backing of Vladimir Putin, with the Russian president allowing the warlord to rule Chechnya as a virtual fiefdom as long as he kept the long-restive region in order.

The report was also confirmed by Russian LGBT rights groups.

"God damn them for what they are accusing us of", added Kadyrov.

When reports of violent persecution of gay men first surfaced a few months ago, the Chechen leader said his republic does not have the phenomenon called non-traditional sexual orientation.

The latest interview with the leader of Russia's Chechen Republic, where he dismissed the United States as too weak to be Russia's enemy, has been widely cited in the media.
