Urgent intervention is needed to stop the persecution of gay men by Chechen authorities.

Human rights groups have raised concerns about the persecution of gay men in Chechnya.

Russian newspapers and human rights groups report that more than 100 gay men have been detained “in connection with their non-traditional sexual orientation”, and several men are feared dead following violent raids. 

Novaya Gazeta reports that a secret concentration camp has been set up to detain the men arrested in the purge.

We are calling on the Russian government and Chechen authorities respect human rights laws by putting an end to the violent persecution of LGBT people in the region.

Everyone should be free to live as themselves, and these horrific crimes against gay people must be urgently investigated.
