Russia’s Internal Affairs Ministry has begun calling transgender people in for questioning in St. Petersburg and the Arkhangelsk region, reports human rights organization Sphere. Police officers are demanding trans people explain how they obtained medical certificates confirming their gender reassignment. According to Sphere, the ministry sent summonses to two people in the Arkhangelsk region and one person in St. Petersburg. One man who was called in said that during the “interview,” an officer asked him where he got his certificate, how much it cost, who recommended getting it, and who was on the approval committee. The officer also asked if he had attended any LGBTQ+ parties. When he said he couldn’t remember, he was given another summons and told: “We’ll keep calling you in [until you do].”
