We got this story almost from the horses mouth. Notice that Tass (Russian news Agency) as you read this story you will notice they don’t mention gay persecution or violence but rather gay rights. That is because it is the kremlin line that there is no persecution of Gays. This is, as the Chechen’s said there are no gays in Chechnya to insist family members of gays to have them killed.
Yes, the Russian government have always behave like aliens from Uranus, not that the American government is any different just now making their own alternate truth which is what Putin’s is being done here. Even as Chechen say what they are doing Putin says there is no evidence. You could have the bodies brought to him and he will say it was lightning. Trump has not personally even mentioned this persecution.
