Quote
Early reports emerged earlier this month that gay people are being targeted in the region, which is part of Russia but has substantial autonomy.

Russian newspapers and human rights groups report that more than 100 gay men have been detained “in connection with their non-traditional sexual orientation, or suspicion of such” as part of a purge. Several people were also reportedly feared dead following violent raids.

In a chilling response, a Chechen government spokesperson denied that there are any gay people to detain, insisting that “you can’t detain and harass someone who doesn’t exist in the republic”. The Kremlin denied any knowledge of a purge.

Quote
“Those who have escaped said they are detained in the same room and people are kept altogether, around 30 or 40. They are tortured with electric currents and heavily beaten, sometimes to death.”

While this is all horrifying, it's touching that you've been paying such close attention to LGBT rights in Russia that you are only now posting an article about gay men being put in concentration camps from April 2017.

Unfortunately, this has been going on since at least Nazi Germany. It's hardly a new development.

I pay practically no attention to news in general.
