Video: Russian Paratroopers Attack Gay Rights Activist
We can now add another video to the stockpile of evidence in the case against Russia. Chilling video has emerged of Russian paratroopers attacking a lone LGBT activist in St. Petersburg.
A lone gay rights activist, Krill Kalugin, was assaulted by a violent group of Russian paratroopers in the city that was the birth place of the country’s anti-gay legislation. Mr Kalugin was holding a rainbow banner in St Petersburg that read “This is propagating tolerance” when he was attacked. Although riot police intervened to arrest the paratroopers, it is not known if Mr Kalugin was arrested or charged too.
