Two people have been tortured to death in new attacks on LGBTI people in Chechnya. Around 40 men and women have been abducted and detained in a government building, based on their alleged sexual orientation.
Over 140 people suspected of being LGBTI have been targeted by the Chechen government to date. The authorities won’t admit that these people even exist, let alone that they’re actively persecuting them.
Tell President Putin to investigate these reports and to ensure that anyone found guilty or complicit in these crimes is brought to justice.
