    English is not my first language, so can somone be Gay tó another ?

    1. I would say no.

      The article should be interpreted to mean that the victim revealed to the two men that he was gay.

    2. It should have read “he revealed to them that he was gay” there is then no misunderstanding. That is why language use and grammar are so important.

  2. Would anyone be surprised if the local clergy give medals to the attackers?

    1. Probably, or local politicians and there are probably local celebrations there too . In Russia they always celebrate the murder of gay people, it’s their cultural endemic. Backward, primitive culture and people which has contributed nothing to progression.

      1. Looks like something only an extremely ignorant person or a troll would say.

        1. Which part? maybe you can enlighten me otherwise, if you are capable, rather than make an empty comment, you obviously have no idea how primitive Russia is regarding human rights .

    And yet, ironically, there are no laws against the possession of child pornography in Russia (a fact I have looked up on Wikipedia)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Child_pornography_laws
    So much for them wanting to ban the promotion of homosexuality to protect children, what hypocritical double standards!

  4. It demonstrates the fruits of the policy of west contries that supported a totaly criminal regime in Russia ruled by crazy communists as if it is “normal country”

  5. this article neglects to mention they smashed his skull in with a rock.
