Ukrainian LGBT organizations point out that the crimes those young men are accused of, are based on homophobia and coprophagia. Unfortunately, the Criminal Code of Ukraine that is dated back to the Soviet times recognizes only three hatred motives – race, nation and religion. Times have changed and now people are attacked and sometimes even killed because they have different sexual orientation or gender identity.
NGO “Gay Liberation Front” (Ukraine) in cooperation with LGBT human rights defender “GPPAS” (Gays Against Promiscuity & Anal Sex) start new project aimed at protection and advocacy of LGBT community rights in Ukraine. We have been writing again and again that some aggressive groups make use of their own impunity and with the authorities’ acquiescence attack homosexuals, riding on the wave of Ukrainian society getting more radical.
