2_centralstationIn the night of November, 23 a well-known Moscow gay club “Central Station” was again under attack.  Unknown malefactors sprayed some harmful gas inside the club among about 500 attendees. Several people sought medical attention but refused to go to a hospital.

The club staff immediately turned on a smoke removal machine which eliminated the gas from the premises in a couple of minutes, LifeNews reports.

“Today is the fourth provocation against the club arranged by unknown persons. We believe that they are connected with the building owner”,  says Andrey Leschinsky, the club general director. “They are spraying the gas inside the club premises, thereby trying to express their extremist views against LGBT community, which likes to visit our club”.

Andrey Leschinsky stressed that that in addition to gas attacks there were other indidents against the club. About a week ago, unknown visitors threatened the club and even shot a gun.
