On Sunday, May 22, the comedian and television host John Oliver mocked Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov on his late night news satire program, “Last Week Tonight,” for asking his social media audience to make a group effort to find a missing pet cat. Oliver encouraged viewers to use various hashtags to communicate to Kadyrov the status of their individual searches, after Kadyrov wrote on Instagram last week about a beloved local cat “having vanished.”

According to Kadyrov, he's received photographs of cats from countries all around the world, from Japan to Iceland. One photograph was even sent from the Oval Office, he claims.

Kadyrov did not respond to Oliver’s commentary about the leader’s alleged human rights violations and use of torture.
