Identity of the perpetrator(s): riot police; officials of Leninskij precinct; Elena Litvina - judge
The victim was detained on his way home following his participation in a protest. He was at a bus stop when men in black jumped off a van, punched him in the face causing him to fall on the ground, and severely beat him with clubs. The victim was taken to the Leninskiy precinct where he spent several hours.
When the police learned that he was an LGBT supporter, they bullied him. He was incarcerated for three days in prison #4. He was detained in a cell with sixteen (16) other men, all of whom participated in protests. Although officials were aware of the victim's asthma, he was refused any medication.
At a court hearing on Aug 12, 2020, he requested legal aid but officials, including a referee, refused to provide such assistance. A judge threatened the victim with other charges should he continue participating in protests.
