Russia’s top investigative paper claims Chechnya operates six prisons for gay men

Totally innocent – claims no Gays in Chechnya

Russia’s foremost investigative newspaper claims it has located six prisons for gay men in Chechnya, casting doubts over its recent denials of reports that local gay men have been disappearing.

The independent weekly Novaya Gazeta published explosive reports citing LGBT activists and anonymous members of law enforcement in Russia earlier this month, detailing the detention of people of “non-traditional” sexual orientation in Russia’s conservative, predominantly Muslim region of Chechnya.

    Why would anyone ever refer to Chechnya as conservative, it is a cesspool of Islamic radicalism and the reason Putin took hold of the territory because left to the Ukrainians it was a threat to any civilized area.

      Chechnya and Ukraine are about 1000km apart, with Russia being the divider.

    That is not important according to N. American homosexual activists who claim to be in fear of Trump putting them all in a concentration camp before sending them to the gas chambers.

    guys, this is a dangerous man, no yoke.

  • So Russia does in fact have independent media — now isn’t that Interesting!

    So let me see if I can get this straight, Senator John McCain (and other numbskull Republicans). The US must not — under any circumstances — seek cooperation with Russia on fighting global terrorism. Even though it has not been a totalitarian Communist Nation for some 25 years — thanks to people like Ronald Reagan. But it’s okay to cooperate with totalitarian Communist China, for example in confronting N. Korea. Even though China has absolutely no freedom whatsoever (except for a limited level of corporate capitalism). Yet China is supposed to be okay, and Russia for some reason is intrinsically evil for reasons that no one can explain.

    And I don’t think Russia jails homosexuals but I’m pretty sure China does, as do Communists as well as Islamists everywhere. The only thing about homosexuals in Russia is they can’t sexualize children and teach their sexual ideology. Which, if the majority of parents in the West had their way, would also be policy in the “democratic” West. Except democracy in the West has been infiltrated by Communist ideology and seriously compromised — hence the majority often has no say on a number of issues. Because Communism — the Western brand — ironically originating in the former Communist Soviet Union (i.e. Russia)!

    Anybody else see a pattern here? So how does McCain and the other numbskull Republicans deal with these very profound contradictions? The same way the commie Democrats do: conspiracy theories and schizophrenia.

    Thank goodness no Arab or Persian country jails people for being gay.

    They even offer them free flying lessons!
