HORRIFYING – Russian Skinheads Using Social Media Sites To Lure And Torture LGBT Teens – Video

Russian child abuse

Russian ultranationalist and former skin head, Maxim Martsinkevich, known under the nickname “Cleaver” (or “Tesak” in Russian) spearheaded a country wide campaign against LGBT teens using a popular social network VK.com to lure unsuspected victims through personal ads.

Mr. Martsinkevich’s numerous and enthusiastic followers started two projects: “Occupy Pedophilyaj” and “Occupy Gerontilyaj”.  Allegedly they are trying to identify and report pedophiles using these “movements”.  In reality, over 500 online groups have been created inside VK.com social network in order to organize illegal militant groups in every Russian city. Oddly enough their idea of fighting pedophiles targets exclusively male teenagers who respond to the same-sex personal ads and show up for a date. Captured victims are bullied and and sometimes tortured while being recorded on video.  These self-proclaimed “crime fighters” perform their actions under the broad day light, often outside and clearly visible to general public that indifferently passes by or even commend them. Video recordings of bullying and tortures are freely distributed on the Internet in order to out LGBT teens to their respective schools, parents and friends. Many victims were driven to suicides, the rest are deeply traumatized. So far Russian police took no action against these “movements” even though Russian criminal code was clearly violated and despite numerous complaints from parents, victims and LGBT activists.  Social network VK.com intermittently shuts down selected groups and profiles only to allow them to be re-open on the next day. Currently, the founder of VK.com, Pavel Durov, resides in the US and so far has not released any comments.

RUSSIAN LGBT PERSECUTION AND HATE MUST BE STOPPED!

WARNING:  This graphic and violent video shows an underage victim in Moscow, Russia.  The Russian bullies set up a the youth on a dating site, caught him and are interrogating him about his lifestyle choices.   They force him to say his full name, number and address and promise him to show this video to all his friends.  They force him to agree to ex-gay conversion therapy.  They also force him to say that he approves of what their “organization” is doing and will help them promote their cause. They pour urine on him from a beer bottle and the video ends.

No child should have to go through this.

  1. Horrifying is an inadequate word to describe this degrading behavior towards a child. He looks to be in shock from fear throughout the video, and you need not understand a word of Russian to know he is in torment. My prayers go out to him and all the other children who are being abused in this way. But that is not enough – we must all stop buying Russian products including Dan Savage’s suggestion of Russian vodkas. Boycott the Winter Olympics too. And we must make OUR governement act. Call your congressmen now, write the President. DO SOMETHING TODAY. Pressure must be brought bear. This boy is part of our community, lets give him some kind of hope for his future.
