Anti-Gay Activist Maxim Martsinkevich Flees Russia To Avoid Charges Of Extremism: VIDEO


In July we told you about the Russian anti-gay group, "Occupy Pedophilia," its leader Maxim Martsinkevich and their use of social media to lure gay men into "honey traps," humiliating them and filming the encounters.

BuzzFeed reports that Martsinkevich, who previously served three years in prison for "inciting hatred" after shouting "Sieg heil" and "kill the liberals" at a political debate in 2007, has now fled Russia on an "urgent vacation" for Thailand to avoid being charged with extremism by Russian authorities:

The charges appear to be based on a video he filmed in Ukraine last month in which he trapped, humiliated and seemingly beat a gay man from Iraq. Prosecutors have yet to charge Martsinkevich, but police searched his and his parents’ apartments last week.

The incident first came to light in Ukraine, where police in the eastern city of Lugansk launched a criminal case for “hooliganism” after members of the country’s Iraqi diaspora complained about the attack. One member of the diaspora told a local tabloid that the targeted student had told them he had gone to meet a girl and was then attacked by seven men who threatened him and demanded money. The Iraqis went to file charges, but withdrew them after they saw the video, showing the man with boy presented by Martsinkevich as being 15 years old, and said they wanted the student to leave the country “so as not to cast a shadow on the rest [of them] [...]

In the video, Martsinkevich confronts an Iraqi man expecting to have sex with a boy whom Martsinkevich says is 15 years old. He disrupts the Iraqi man in the middle of a shower, shaves his head in a reverse mohawk, paints a rainbow on his head and a star on his chest, and forces him to make a “confession.” Martsinkevich is also seen brandishing a police baton before the video cuts to a screen saying “No To Violence” while the Iraqi man’s bloodcurdling screams are heard.

You can watch the video in question AFTER THE JUMP... WARNING: The video contains disturbing and graphic images.

  3. I would be willing to bet this has almost nothing to do with his homophobia/violence and everything to do with his politics.

  4. SO a guy who opposes sexual "perversion" and pedophilia flees to Thailand? Come on, that's hilarious.

  5. I can't bring myself to watch the disgusting video, but he sounds like a gay sadist with no training or outlet.

  10. Now that Maxim has left for Thailand, he is more vulnerable. I sincerely hope that he gets found, made to experience the full extent of what he has inspired, and disappears forever. He deserves to suffer and then unrest in a shallow grave.

  13. You know, maybe we need laws that allow human-rights violators like this guy to be prosecuted or sued anywhere if they have a government that is tolerating such behavior.

  14. In that video Maxim has caught a pedophile, who arranged to meet 13 year old teenager to have sex for money ( boy with a mobile ). So that " poor victim gay" is a pedophile. Wwhy all western gay community protect rus pedophiles? Really funny.

  15. @Russiangopnik slime

    Why does Russia demonize gay men and women?

  16. @Russianwoman

    Hey pig, you don't take the law into your own hands. The POINT is that this behavior kills gay men and women who arent trying to meet 15 year olds.

    But youre Russian / automatic moron.

    Posted by: plucky 2.0 | Nov 14, 2013 9:21:55 AM

  17. I dont want to watch the video. Is there acutually a "boy" or is it just an assertion? Where do you know that this guy wanted to meet a boy? Because Tesak told so?
    Because the guy "confessed" it? Believe me, you would confess everything if a bunch of Neonazis would break into your flat and humilate you.

    And why should these Nazis know? Did they hack his messages?

    I don't say it's not true, I juast wonder why some of you are so sure about that.
