Around 100 men have been apprehended in the region and put in the first camps for LGBT people since the Holocaust. Some are believed to have been killed.
The majority-Muslim region is said to be using the camps to force homosexuals to promise to leave the republic.
Repressions against gay men reportedly began after an application for a gay rights march in the capital of Grozny.
The men are reportedly being held in ‘camps’ for gay men and LGBT rights activists are mounting an effort to evacuate them.
‘Any references to “traditions” to justify kidnappings and killings are immoral and criminal.
Adding: ‘The Russian LGBT Network is ready to evacuate people.’
