I was very sympathetic towards Russia, previous to coming to know of their recent vile homophobic witch-hunt. I can not fathom how Putin, in some deluded appeal to extremists, has decided gays equate to pedophilia! He has endorsed the authorities to ignore nefarious criminals who trick gay teenagers to undergo an inhumane and despicable torrent of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse: identifying, naming, beating, maiming, and pouring urine! ￼ Gay hunting season in Russia: Shocking documentary everyone should see Can not believe things have escalated so far in a so called European Democracy. This documentary was really upsetting.
