According to the Russian LGBT network, an NGO that has been hiding over 60 gay Chechens at secret locations in central Russia, it briefed almost 20 EU countries on the situation in April. But France, Germany and Lithuania were the only EU countries that agreed to work with the network on the relocation of victims of the anti-gay purge. One source close to the Lithuanian government told EUobserver in May that Canada was also working with Lithuania and the Russian LGBT network on the evacuation. In recent weeks, one more country, which wants to remain anonymous, has teamed up with the Russian LGBT network - a step that has been welcomed by its representative, Tatiana Vinnichenko.
