(informal translation by GLORI Foundation, the original in Russian can be accessed at www.rus.azattyk.org) A short video clip gets circulated in social networks where a young man is abused by a group of people who rape him with a glass bottle. This is the most recent video evidence of violation of rights of stigmatized homosexual community.
A series of video clips available through WhatsApp, shows a young man, most probably of Uzbek ethnicity, who is forced to confirm his gay background. He is forced to strip off, and the clothes get burned. He is handcuffed, beaten, threatened with a gun. Afterwards he is forced to sit on a glass bottle and imitate a sex rape.
