The primitive brutality and evil of Chechen authorities is brutal and deadly with no mercy or justice. LGBTs are also in danger from their families when police out them to their families. What is the source of such deadly homophobia? No doubt the Russian leadership is partly to blame as it continues it anti-gay rhetoric and repressive laws.
There appears to be a particular cultural hatred that’s deeply ingrained against homosexual citizens there and in former USSR satellite countries and regions. Where does the irrational feeding frenzy against gays come from?
