A bisexual Russian man who has since fled to a safe country was subjected to torture because he attempted to find evidence of the anti-LGBTQ purge happening in Chechnya, according to Gay Star News. LGBTQ people in Chechnya are being detained, beaten, and humiliated because of their sexuality and one man named Elbrus and his friends were looking for any evidence that points to a possible genocide of gay people in Chechnya. Elbrus was not directly involved in this evidence-finding expedition but his friends showed him documents and videos of burials and graves that the filmed while in Chechnya. Last May his friend Marat asked to use Elbrus’ car so that he can do business in the city of Karachaevsk and in the Karachay-Cherkessia Republic. But Marat has never come back, as Elbrus noticed his car was returned the day after it was borrowed but he did not notice Marat in it. Shortly after that discover, Elbrus was kidnapped by officers and they demanded that he destroy all evidence of what was found by his friends.
