Khadziev embraced the Chechen leader at a recent wedding reception. Subsequently, a number of residents of Ingushetia demanded that Khadziev apologize for his actions, which he did, which provoked Kadyrov's indignation. The head of Chechnya said that he did not ask Khadziev to hug him and did not even “call him to him,” and then gave the residents of Ingushetia three days to bring charges against him.
