Russia calls horrific gay attacks ‘no worse than UK’s treatment of gingers’

Russia calls horrific gay attacks ‘no worse than UK’s treatment of gingers’

Officials in the Russian embassy in London are furious over a recent UK documentary exposing the homophobic attacks in Russia. In response, they have labelled the Channel 4 film Hunted ‘slander’, ‘hate propaganda’ and they could have easily created a documentary about the UK hunting down redheads.

‘Hunted’, screened last week before the Sochi Winter Olympics, has been described as one of the ‘most shocking and important documentaries of recent years’. But Russia disagreed, calling it ‘slander’ and saying the ‘documentary’s emotional appeal is misleading, since the film falls for short of the standards of professional journalistic standards’.
