Gay Advocate Sues over Famous Actor for Abasement of Human Dignity
Ivan Okhlobystin

An activist of the LGBT community demands 30 thousand rubles from the actor Ivan Okhlobystin as compensation for moral damage.

      The gay activist Nikolay Bayev filed a lawsuit against the actor Ivan Okhlobystin and reported about it on his Facebook page.

      According to the activist, he goes to the law for honor and dignity protection. Ivan Okhlobystin’s provocative statement about the need "to burn gays in furnaces" stirred indignation of Nikolay Bayev. The activist declared that he would not count on Russian courts and planned to bring the case to the European Court on Human Rights. According to the gay advocate he aims at creating a precedent of defending rights of the LGBT community in Russia. “Total impunity of such people as Okhlobystin gives a free hand to real murderers and criminals” - he declared.

      Bayev demands Okhlobystin to apologize publicly to gay community and pay 30 thousand rubles as compensation for moral damage. Preliminary hearing will take place on February 17.
