The Moscow police overwhelmed the first-ever Gay Parade in Moscow Saturday. Militant Orthodox Christians and ultranationalists violently protested against the march. European politicians lashed out at the Russian officials for flagrantly violating human rights.
Gays and lesbians from 20 countries came to Moscow last weekend for Moscow Pride 2006, the first gay march to be staged in Moscow. The place of the parade was kept in secret up to the last moment since Moscow city authorities banned the event, the Tverskoy court endorsed the decision while groups of radical Orthodox Christians promised to “punish sodomites.” (Kommersant)
