"It’s important to remember who we are dealing with here. They are fascists who have chosen the easiest prey — gay people — and don’t even have to hide it anymore,” Igor Kochetkov, chairman of the Russian LGBT Network, says in a new video released by Human Rights Watch.
The video features disturbing footage of multiple gaybashings in Russia, including one horrific incident of a man being stripped and beaten, having his clothes burned, having a gun pointed at his head and being forced to penetrate himself with a glass bottle.
"Do you agree that we should kill you?” his attackers ask.
"I guess that is my fate,” he replies.
