(Community Matters) “Putin is fag and the rest of it is all shit. The entire country is on its knees. We are Russians! We are working!” – Russian paratroopers shouting at police and media in St. Petersburg as a lone gay activist is whisked away by police, preventing the paratroopers from beating him.
Ironic that these paratroopers are turning the hate and nationalism President Putin unleashed back on him. For him, I doubt it’s anything more than thuggish attempts to deflect criticism as he & his friends loot the country and trample human rights.
