CHECHEN DICTATOR REPORTEDLY ROUNDING UP GAY MEN INTO CONCENTRATION CAMPS

Gay men are being rounded up and put into ‘concentration camps’ in Chechnya, it has been claimed.

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.

Russian group LGBT Network said: ‘No national and/or religious traditions and norms can justify kidnapping or killing of a human being.

‘Any references to “traditions” to justify kidnappings and killings are immoral and criminal.

Adding: ‘The Russian LGBT Network is ready to evacuate people.’
