Sick. Sounds like gay men are being used as political scapegoats in the hell hole that is Chechnya to divert attention from more critical issues and Putin is playing politics with issue.

Because Chechnya is part of Russia and totally under its control and it's more likely that anything happening there had Putins approval than didn't and that they were just having a trial run there.
It's not like Russia has a good LGBT rights history ?

I don't know why this thread isn't titled Chechnya, Russia.

Activists Protesting Torture of Gay Men in Chechnya Detained

MOSCOW — Several activists were detained in Moscow on Thursday as they prepared to submit signatures they have collected to protest arbitrary detentions and torture of gay men in Chechnya.

The abuse was first reported in April by the independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta, which said about 100 suspected gay men were rounded up and tortured, and at least three were killed. The Associated Press separately interviewed two Chechen men who spoke of torture and corroborated the reports.

LGBTQ activist Igor Yasin said five people were detained in the morning outside the Prosecutor General's Office as they brought about 2 million signatures collected to protest the treatment of gay people in Chechnya in Russia's south.

The New York-based civic group Avaaz, which helped collect the signatures worldwide, said in a statement that one of the people detained Thursday morning is an Italian activist. Avaaz's campaign director, Bert Wander, described the detentions as a "blatant attempt by Russia to intimidate those standing up for gay people (which) will only draw more global attention to the horrors unfolding in Chechnya."

President Vladimir Putin last week assured the country's human rights ombudswoman that he would speak with law enforcement officials about the reported torture of gay men. Tatyana Moskalkova, the ombudswoman, has asked for a taskforce to be formed to investigate the treatment of gays in this predominantly Muslim region.

Germany grants refuge to gay man from Russian Muslim province



Germany has granted a humanitarian visa to a gay man from Russia's Chechnya region and is considering four more requests, the foreign ministry said Thursday.
Authorities in the North Caucasus region have been jailing and torturing homosexual men, Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported in March.

It said that over 100 gays had been arrested in the Muslim-majority region and that their families had been told to kill them to "cleanse their honour".

The German foreign ministry said that, in the case of one gay man, "a visa was issued and the person was able to come to Germany on June 6," while four more cases were under consideration.

"We are glad we are able to help in particularly difficult cases," said a ministry official.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel in early May urged Russian President Vladimir Putin to investigate the reports of an anti-gay purge and to ensure the safety of gays and lesbians.

A Gay man in Chechnya has now come forward to say that gay men in Chehcnya were framed by Western Media. This man has now apologised to the President and people of Chechnya for having shamed them. He also apologises to Europe.

The autonomous authorities in this Muslim majority republic in Russia typically threaten the families of gay men to coerce them into doing their bidding so this lacks all credibility.
It would be more effective propaganda from Russia and Putin if they at least arrested and put on trial in Moscow the politicians and police responsible for all the homophobic hate crimes in checyna instead of trying to pretend they were not happening.
