Gay people in Chechnya fear they could be ‘eliminated’. The ‘elimination’ of gay men is thought to be started before the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan. Ramzan Kadyrov the leader of semi-autonomous Chechnya has sparked fury after his recent anti-LGBT persecution. The majority-Muslim region is said to be using ‘concentration camps‘ to force homosexuals to promise to leave the republic. Men are reportedly being held in concentration camps for gay men while LGBT rights activists are mounting an effort to evacuate them.
