HUNDREDS AGAINST CHECHNYA’S ANTI-LGBT PURGE

Hundreds of Londoners of LGBT+ community are set to go upon the Russian Embassy on Holocaust Memorial Day (January 27) to protest against the new wave of attacks in Chechnya.

In 2017, it was reported that more than 100 gay target men were arrested, tortured and killed in the predominately Muslim region of Russia.

The Russian LGBT Network said that around 40 men and women have been detained in the same facility on suspicion of being gay since December.

At least two of them have died of torture.
