    The spokesman for the leader Ramzan Kadyrov said:

    "You cannot arrest or repress people who just don’t exist in the republic, if such people existed in Chechnya, law enforcement would not have to worry about them, as their own relatives would have sent them to where they could never return".

    This is just too horrific to comprehend.

    Why are people still so obsessed with other people's sexuality? Leave them alone!
    And apart from the crimes...to live a life with such fear, and a constant paranoia that rules the whole community. I wouldn't be surprised if many of them had already comitted suicide.

    Because they're obsessed with their own.

    But not, obviously, in a healthy way.

    This week Angela Merkel raised concerns with Russian president Vladimir Putin about the violent crackdown on homosexuals in Chechnya during a meeting in Sochi on Tuesday. "I asked President Putin to use his influence to protect these minority rights," she told reporters after the meeting. Meanwhile our Prime Minister in Britain has done nothing.
