Westminster Russia Forum Response to Alleged LGBT Rights Abuses in Chechnya

With the ongoing alleged human rights in Chechnya against the LGBT community the Westminster Russia Forum is clear – if proven this is a terrible abuse of human rights which should be called out where possible and maximum pressure applied by the Federal Government to limit such abuses.

Westminster Russia Forum has a wide supporter base with members from the LGBT community – we will continue to monitor the situation and raise objections with the right authorities.

We fully support the UK Government’s protestations on this matter as well as supporting efforts by Moscow to curtail such abuses.

Nicholas Cobb – Chairman – Westminster Russia Forum
