Chechen President Kadyrov's $3,000,000 Motorcade
Yasha Levine ( Email ) on March 27, 2008

This video of Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov's official presidential caravan was posted on YouTube on March 12. It shows a procession of about 50 luxury cars, mostly BMWs, Porsche Cayennes and huge Lexus SUVs—speeding around the republic like it's the Dakar Rally.
