In the meantime, one of the correspondents conducting the interview, Gregory Feifer, is writing up the back story of the interview, conducted at 2 a.m. in Kadyrov's compound.
For a little taste of life at Chez Kadyrov, you can watch him playing billiards and having a thoroughly good time (video above).
For a more serious take, read Liz Fuller on Kadyrov's evolving political credo.
