An unidentified gay teen (pictured) who was kidnapped, bullied and tortured by a group of Russian skinheads has reportedly died as a result. According to Eastern European LGBT advocacy group,Spectrum Human Rights Alliance (SHRA), Putin’s government “seems to fully condone” this violence.

Russian neo-Nazis have been luring gay male teens through the social network VK.com only to subject them to a series of humiliations they film and distribute online. Victims have been left traumatized with some committing suicide, but it’s unknown whether this latest victim died from his injuries or if he took his own life.
