A video depicting a man being raped with a bottle has surfaced on social media, in what appears to be the latest assault on Russia’s beleaguered gay community.
The series of short clips, making the rounds on the mobile phone application WhatsApp show the victim, who seems to be an ethnic Uzbek, being bullied into ‘confessing’ that he is gay.
He is asked to identify himself and is stripped of his clothes, which are later burned. He is then handcuffed, beaten, insulted, and threatened with a gun. Ultimately, he is forced to sodomize himself by sitting on a bottle, which is then pushed with a bat.
The man, visibly terrified, weeps throughout much of the ordeal.
Viewers on WhatsApp overwhelmingly praised the violence as a well-deserved punishment.
