Russian police have detained LGBT activists attempting to raise awareness about the persecution of gay men in Chechnya. The demonstration was held during a May Day march in St Petersburg, with a group of around 10 protesters arrested near the Anichkov Palace in the centre of Russia’s second city.

Images shared on Twitter showed activists lying on the road pretending to be dead, with fake blood smeared across their faces and covered with rainbow and Chechen flags.

Officers in riot gear were shown arresting protesters and dragging them to a police van. A separate group of gay-rights protesters were detained with placards that called for the Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, to be tried at the International Court of Justice in The Hague.

Odd, you are mad at Russian police, but not those persecuting gays in muslim Chechnya.

It's not persecution when muslims do it.

Exactly when did Drwas say he was not mad at them? A moderator trying to cause drama in a forum?

Ok, so explain that he's not said a word about Chechnya, other than to slag off the Russian Police.
