Russian Militant Groups Target Gay Teens For Public Torture — Police Have Done Nothing

Looks like there will be no Benedict Cumberbatch-officiated weddings in Russia any time soon.

This is sincerely very heartbreaking.

Maxim Martsinkevich, well-known Russian nationalist and allegedly former skinhead, is leading a violent anti-gay movement in his home country that is specifically targeting teenage boys through a social network site called VK.com.

Martsinkevich — who is also known by the nickname “Tesak” (“Cleaver” in English) — calls the projects Occupy Pedophilyaj and Occupy Gerontilyaj. The supposed objective of the movements is to sniff out pedophiles, but the resulting action has been deceiving and abusing gay teens who are dating online.

Although the militant groups following Martsinkevich are illegal, the anti-gay sentiment in the country has been institutionalized. In addition to the church's premonition of a gay-precipitated apocalypse, Russian president, Vladimir Putin, signed into law earlier this month legislation that bans nearly any kind of homosexual behavior or expression, from same-sex couples holding hands to acknowledging publicly one is gay to even wearing rainbow-patterned clothing.

The participants in Occupy Pedophilyaj and Occupy Gerontilyaj set up fake profiles on VK.com, arranging dates with young men, who, upon arriving at the agreed-upon destination — often broad daylight in an open area — are bullied and tortured. The incidents have been filmed and posted online.

Some victims have reportedly subsequently committed sucide.

There has been no police intervention on Occupy Pedophilyaj and Occupy Gerontilyaj. VK.com occasionally temporarily terminates the groups’ accounts, but often allows them to come back online the next day.

Pavel Durov, VK.com’s founder, resides in the U.S.

He has made no public comments about these incidents.

We know when things are out of sight, they're out of mind.

But Pavel, when they're on YOUR site, you need to be mindful.

    Absolutely horrific. I never heard of VK.com until today, and I will make sure I never visit that site ever. The founder of VK lives in the U.S does he….Pavel Durov? Well I hope some news site tracks him down under what ever rock he is living under and makes him explain his views on what is being shown on the site he founded. Where are the international human rights organizations, and why are they remaining silent on this disgusting abuse?
