In the Czech village of Krabnice, a horse owned by Ramzan Kadyrov was stolen for $19,000.

The Czech police are investigating the theft of an English breeding horse from a stable in the village of Krabchitse in the north-east of the country, Pavla Kofrova, a representative of the department, said.

Portal reports that a 16-year-old bay stallion named Zazu belongs to the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov. The horse was included in Kadyrov's property, frozen in the Czech Republic under international sanctions.

Kadyrov bought Zazu in Germany in 2012. The purpose of this was for the horse to enter the Dubai Cup, which has a prize pool of US$30.5 million. The stallion took part in 36 races and won 1.2 million euros.

Sanctions against Ramzan Kadyrov were introduced back in 2014. He tried several times to get the sanctions lifted, but to no avail.
