Russia’s Idea of Welcoming LGBT Visitors to Sochi?

The Winter Games start in less than three days and Vladimir Putin says LGBT people are welcome in Russia so long as they” leave children in peace”. Those comments reflect the widespread practice of equating gays with pedophiles in Russia and have inspired groups like Occupy Pedophilia. This group of thugs has bashed, tortured and even kidnapped queer Russians and the police have done little or nothing to stop them.

The following video compiled by the Human Rights Campaign includes disturbing footage of many of those attacks. Anyone who gets the urge to vacation in Russia after watching the Olympics might want to keep these images in mind.
