Vicious Russian Neo-Nazi Attacker Flees To Cuba

Maxim "The Cleaver" Martsinkevich, a regular presence in those hard-to-watch torture videos out of Russia, has fled to Cuba after finally stirring up attention from Russian and Ukranian authorities. 

According to Vocativ:

According to posts on Martsinkevich’s VKontakte social networking page, he was in Cuba as early as December 10. According to the visa agreement between Russia and Cuba, Russians are allowed to stay without a visa for 30 days. That means he either needs to get a visa now, stay illegally or leave. And he says he doesn’t have the money to fly home. In a post on his blog today, he talks about flying from Kiev to Havana via Frankfurt, and expounds on the lack of virtues of the German airport. Martsinkevich does not find German women attractive. He says nothing about his visa situation or future travel plans.

The post Martsinkevich wrote that's referenced above reads in translation:

Attention! Official dispatch from Freedom Island (i.e. Cuba)! An offer regarding the investigation and trial. The case against me is very unusual. There are no victims. No damages. The investigation was done by incompetents. The crimes were committed virtually. I was charged without being present. I was arrested in absentia. Contrary to Interpol statutes, there has been an international arrest warrant issued in my name. I do not recognize my guilt. I am currently in Latin America and do not have the money to return to Russia. Given the above and thinking logically, I ask the following: To hold the questioning and trial in the open for the mass media to observe, with me being present via Skype. In case of conviction, I offer to serve the prison term virtually, by placing an avatar behind bars for the amount of time designated by the court. That would be fair and just, and would help bring about legal innovation. If you agree, repost this message. Sincerely, Maxim Martsinkevich.

The timing of Martsinkevich's departure means he left the country a few weeks after he posted that torture video of the gay Ukranian X-Factor star, seen here. What took Russia so long to put on the heat? "The Cleaver" had been posting such torture videos for at least six months before fleeing the country and escaping punishment (for now...).



That's odd, since what he was doing is legal in Russia, and has been celebrated widely across the country. Maybe he wasn't vicious enough?

Do you know what is needed??  We need our own community version of Simon Weisenthal.  A group of gay hate hunters that travel the world to bring these idiots to justice.  Swoop down to Cuba, pick him up, and deliver him to the court with a flurry of social media and old media following the process.  The resulting publicity could force the Russian courts to actually focus on this case and not dismiss the crimes.

But NOT to a Russian court.  Crimes against humanity need to tried someplace where the case will be actually taken seriously.
