Report surfaces of Sept. 11 anti-gay attack in Russia

We made him sit on a bottle so that he repents for his sins and comes to reason. We did this to protect the dignity of Uzbeks. We live and work here, we are in contact with people of different nationalities. There will be no respect for us otherwise.”

An anonymous man who claims to have participated in a brutal Sept. 11 attack on a gay man in Novosibirsk, Russia’s third largest city, speaking to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. The report, which the news service could not verify, details the victim being stripped and then being “forced to sodomize himself by sitting on a bottle, which is then pushed with a bat.” RFE/RL contacted Novosibirsk police, which responded that no such attack has been reported.
