Maxim Sergeyevich Martsinkevich, the leader of the virulently homophobic Russian vigilante group Occupy Pedophilia has been sentenced to five years in a penal colony, reports LGBTQ Nation.

Martsinkevich rose to international attention in 2013 when Occupy Pedophilia began posting videos documenting a campaign of violent attacks on gay men who had been lured to meetings using the social network VK.com.

In many of the videos, Martsinkevich is seen forcibly shaving victims’ heads, pouring urine on victims and forcing them to perform sex acts with objects.

The group claimed that the men they attacked were seeking to have sex with boys.

Amid international outrage, the prosecutor’s office in what was then Sevastopol, Ukraine sought to arrest Martsinkevich for crimes against a young male adult citizen of Ukraine. Martsinkevich fled to Cuba last December but was arrested and extradited for breaking Cuban immigration law in January.

Nine other members of the group are currently awaiting trial for allegedly “committing crimes under several articles of the Criminal Code,” including organization of an extremist community and membership in an extremist community, beatings and other acts of violence, the threat of murder and causing grievous bodily harm, intentional infliction of moderate bodily harm, torture and robbery.”

Martsinkevich was convicted of inciting and fomenting cases of extremism by posting videos on VK.com that contained racial slurs and extremist opinions on Russia’s state of the union. However, videos containing anti-gay statements and homophobic abuse were not included in the case.

  2. Demanding gay men be more masculine should not be a crime. And he's cute to boot.

  3. I was hoping I misread that he had been sentenced to a PENILE colony. Would have been "fitting."

  4. Rick didn't disappoint me, yet again, with his utterly deluded frame of mind.

  5. Why is the ridiculous trolling by you know who (no, not me) allowed on this site? Why is this mega troll and psychotic shill allowed to troll under assumed names, names of other long time posters, and then respond with faux outrage to his own troll posts?

    This Maxim character has most likely MURDERED people, but he gets 5 years. Russia is a horrible place. Ukraine isn't any better. These Eastern European countries have been left so mega effed up by Marxist totalitarianism, and a long history or non-democratic government and societies, it will take a very long time, multiple generations, to repair their damaged psyches.

  8. Hopefully the only "workout" he's going to get will involve smashing rocks with a large hammer all day long on a minimal diet.

    Because Andy Towle either knows "Rick", or he actually is "Rick". At this point, I can think of no other explanation.
