US finally places sanctions on Chechnya’s gay purge tyrant for ‘gross violations of human rights, including torture and killings’

USA sanctioning Chechnya’s gay purges for violating human rights, torturing and killing innocent people. Gay purges in Chechnya started early 2017, when Romzan Kadyrov called for Chechnya to be purified of gay people. But, at the same time he said and (still does) that “We don’t have those kinds of people here. We don’t have any gays. If there are any, take them to Canada. Praise the God.

LGBT+ people’s fears across Europe. A new research shows very interesting results.

“We deserve to feel safe in our country without being afraid to hold hands with our spouse. Today, this is not a reality.”  This is what one of the 140,000 interviewed LGBT+ people across Europe, North Macedonia, Serbia and the UK, added to his survey before handing it to FRA - The European Agency for Human Fundamental Rights - that published an interesting data on the quality of life of the European LGBT+ population. The research, called  “A long way to go for LGBTI equality”, touched different and interesting points related to the quality of life of a person and to their fundamental human rights.
