Life in Checnya: Demonstrating is Dangerous for Your Health

I have not heard a lot of news coming out of Chechnya for a long time. That is because it is too dangerous to report from there. But Vox just came out with this story

LGBTQ people wanted to have a pride march in Chechnya. Then 100 gay men were abducted by police.

And this was not just a temporary detention. According to the story,  a number of the men were tortured and 3 were killed.

Yikes!
