Russian FM spox says the Chechen gays is not an issue for the Foreign Ministry
Jun 2, 2017 — Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson was disturbed by the question about Chechen gays. She asked Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov to set-up a personal trip to Checnhya for Finnish journalist Erkka Mikkonen, when he asked if reports about tortures of Chechen gays affect Russia-EU relations.
Watch the video.
And please continue to reach out to your Foreign Ministry in your country. It is VERY important that these Chechen men get visas, because they need to leave the country.
Find your Foreign Ministry here: https://www.usip.org/publications/2008/03/foreign-affairs-ministries-web, go to their contact page and in informal way ask them to make sure they give free and easy visas to these men.
