Gay Pride demo at St. Petersburg violently repressed

It is in these occasions when we can see the actual quality of Russian pretense of democracy: the Gay Pride demo at St. Petersburg (former Leningrad) was violently repressed by police and Nazi squads.

The quality of democracy in Russia becomes evident when the victim of a Nazi attack, Alexander Sheremetyev, was arrested and his attacker was released soon after detention. Some 14 people were arrested, all them demonstrators for equal rights.
