The youngest: 18

Who are these people? They are the names, released in the newspaper Noyaya Gazeta, of young gay men who were arrested, detained, killed under the cover of darkness, and buried in hastily dug graves. 

Who killed these men? The Chechen government. 

We've just had Pride parades.

We've danced till dawn celebrating our victories.

While 18 year old boys were held captive, while governments declared war on love, while guns were being loaded.

What can I do? Well, do what I'm going to do. I'm going to write my local MP and I'm going to write the Minister of Foreign Affairs. While I'm at it, I'm going to jot a note to the Prime Minister.

I know it's not much.

But it isn't nothing.

And nothing is simply an unacceptable response.

I would imagine this has a lot to do with Kadyrov and his ideologies which are rooted in his faith. He is an extremist . . . one that's in power. I hope that the Separatists who remain are able to do what they set out to do - and eliminate the strongman who's ultimatley responsible for this.
