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.

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."
