Spectrum Human Rights is reporting that the young gay victim who was kidnapped, tortured and forced to come out on camera has died as a result of the injuries he sustained during his torture at the hands of a Neo Nazi group.
These Russian Neo Nazi militant groups have been advised by a top-ranking supremacist to create fake profiles on a popular Russian social network, VK.com, and lure in gay male teenagers in order to torture and humiliate them for being gay.
Over 500 online groups have been created inside VK.com social network in order to organize illegal militant groups in every Russian city.
Their enthusiastic followers have launched two well known projects: “Occupy Pedophilyaj” and “Occupy Gerontilyaj”. Allegedly they are trying to identify and report pedophiles using these “movements”.
Their true agenda is to have Russians associate pedophilia with homosexuality, by forcing all their kidnapped victims to make on camera confessions to being pedophiles all while they are being tortured and humiliated. It is also a way for these groups to gather support from Russian authorities and citizens to continue torturing and murdering their victims. In a country where only 16% believe homosexuality should be accepted, this movement is an attempt to purge Russia of homosexuals.
This latest shocking development was reported by human right activist, Dr. Valentin Degtyarev, MD, who closely monitors infamous Neo Nazi group “Occupy Pedofilyaj.”
The unnamed Uzbek victim was beaten, tortured, painted, and as seen in the picture above, drenched in urine. A translation of Degtyarev’s website, which announced the victim’s death states:
In the official correspondence from the local District Attorney office and Governor’s office it was explained that Russian authorities do not see any wrongdoings in the video clips or photographs posted by Neo Nazi group “Occupy Pedofilyaj.” Actually, the authorities referred to this group as one of the “civil movements fighting the sins of the society.” Dr. Degtyarev diligently collects every piece of evidence and correspondence and records all phone conversation with direct threats to him and his mother.
Yet, no actions from authorities have resulted so far. Dr. Degtyarev is routinely approached and offended on the street, receives numerous threats via mail, phone, SMS and email.
Below is an animated gif taken from the beginning a video of the victims torturing and kidnapping:
Occupy Pedofilyay’s quickly growing sister movement, “Occupy Gerontilyaj” (Occupy Gerontophilia), aims to catch and torture young teenage boys typically ranging in age between 15-17 who are looking to meet older men.
The video below is of a 15-year-old teen who was lured by an organized Neo Nazi gang of self-proclaimed “pedophile fighters” who posted a fake personal ad from allegedly an older man (named “Uncle Dima”). This teen was forced to give out his full name, address, school name, parents names and etc.
They laughed about his sexual preferences, bullied him, poured urine on him and kicked at the end. We would never know what occurred after the camera went out. Naturally, all his personal details were released to the general public and viewed by millions in Russia.
“Being outed in a small city or village in Russia very often means death,” says Larry Poltavtsev of the Spectrum Human Rights Alliance, a Washington, DC-based advocacy group for gay rights in Eastern Europe. “Exposed teenagers may commit suicide, or they’ll be harassed by your peers, their parents may kick them out of their house. It’s a nightmare.”

A recent poll by Pew Research Center found that three out of every four Russians say society should not accept homosexuality. The percentage of those who think homosexuality should be accepted dropped 4% since 2007, from 20% to 16%.
In March, Levada Public Opinion Center reported that 85 percent of Russian adults said they were strongly against a law that would allow same-sex marriage. They also found that supporters of same-sex marriage in Russia fell from 14% to just 5% over the past three years. On the other side of the spectrum, some expressed strong opposition to homosexuality: 16 percent of those polled suggested that homosexuals should be isolated from society, 22 percent said that the treatment of homosexuality must be made compulsory, and 5 percent said that homosexuals should be ‘exterminated.’
Update: Spectrum Human Rights (SHR) has also highlighted another disturbing case of Neo Nazis torturing and kidnapping another gay victim. SHR notes that the victim in the video is a ‘kid with disabilities.’ It must be noted that these organzied Neo Nazi gangs continue to operate within Russia in broad day light and also continue to share videos and pictures online of what they call ‘safaris’ (hunting down gay victims for torture).
And in the following video another victim is tortured and prodded with an electric stun gun:
