Report that Chechnya executed 27 including Gay men

Grozny, Chechnya - The Russian opposition newspaper Novaya Gazeta has reported that Chechen security forces executed 27 people on the night of January 26. Radio Free Europe (RFE) published an English-language summary of the story on July 9. While RFE did not explicitly identify the executed individuals as Gay, it linked the killings to the ongoing pogrom against Gay men in the Caucasian republic, which is part of the Russian Federation and is ruled by an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Russian LGBT Network corroborated the reports, noting that some of the names published by Novaya Gazeta were known to be members of the LGBT community.

Yes, the spector of another three-and-a-half years with Trump and/or Pence in the Oval Office looms larger and more threatening by the hour.
