Gay teen dies after being kidnapped, tortured in Russia

A gay teen who was kidnapped, humiliated and tortured in Russia has reportedly died.

The boy, who has not been named, was a victim of the infamous fascist leader Maxim Matsinkevich, known as ‘Cleaver’.

It is unknown whether he died from his injuries or committed suicide.

In a picture posted by Spectrum Human Rights Alliance, it shows the humiliated young teen in his underwear appearing to hold a sex toy as his captors grin for the camera.

He is also covered in paint, or possibly blood, as a baseball bat looms in the background.

According to SHRA, no arrests have been made and no charges were pressed.

As the victim has not been named, GSN is unable to verify these claims.

Last month, it was revealed Matsinkevich’s group was using the Russian version of Facebook, VK.com, to lure unsuspecting victims through personal ads.

Once a teen shows up for a ‘date’, captured victims are ‘bullied and often tortured while being recorded on video’.

The SHRA says: ‘Video recordings of bulling and torture are freely distributed on the internet in order to out LGBT teens to their respective schools, parents and friends.

‘Many victims were driven to suicides, the rest deeply traumatised.’

The group claims they are simply trying to identify and report pedophiles.

Many of these shocking videos are uploaded to YouTube in order to further humiliate their victims.

In one such video, a gay teen with disabilities is interrogated, choked, and beaten.

When contacted, VK.com shut down several of the groups and profiles but did not stop them from starting new ones the next day.

VK founder Pavel Durov, currently residing in the US, has not commented on the report.

The disturbing revelations come after President Vladimir Putin signed the ‘non-traditional relationships propaganda’ bill into law last month, effectively stopping any person from speaking out for gay rights in Russia.
