Novaya Gazeta have released the names of twenty-seven men who have been murdered in Chechnya which could be a result of the ongoing state-sanctioned anti-gay crusade.

The Russian newspaper which first published the news of a gay purge taking place in Chechnya making international headlines earlier this year and sparking international outrage at the violation of human rights.

Now Novaya Gazeta have revealed that over two dozen men were killed in the capital of Chechnya, Grozny, GSN reports.

These executions took place between January 25 and January 26 following the detention of the men.

“According to our information,” the Novaya Gazeta wrote, “the detainees were shot that night and have carried on various cemeteries, including Christian, and buried in hastily dug graves”.

The newspaper also indicated that more than fifty people have been killed by the Chechen Republic at the behest of Ramzan Kadyrov, the ‘strongman’ leader of Chechnya.


Russian Investigation

In this month’s issue of GCN, Ciara Mc Grattan reports on the tumultuous relationship between Russia and Chechnya, concluding that Vladimir Putin may be tiring of the international scrutiny which Kadyrov’s actions are drawing.

In light of the Novaya Gazeta reports, many nations – including Ireland – urged Russia to formally investigate the alleged breach of human rights which has been taking place as part of Chechnya’s anti-gay purge.

Novaya Gazeta hoped to aid in the ongoing investigation “through repeated and now public appeals to the Investigative Committee of Russia”

“For two months we had hoped for cooperation, which was effective at the very beginning,” the newspaper reports, although now the committee appears to be less effective.

“That is why we publish a list of those who, according to our information, were the victims of the most terrible extrajudicial execution in Grozny”
