Basher On The Run

Notorious Russian Antigay Activist Flees To Cuba, Hopes To Serve Prison Sentence Via Skype

And the hits just keep on coming out of Russia.

Maxim Martsinkevich, the violent homophobe and leader of the controversial “Occupy Pedophilia” movement in Russia, has now fled to Cuba after an arrest warrant was issued for him.

The movement, which targeted and bashed gay men who Martsinkevich and his ilk claimed were trying to meet underage teens for sex, caught the eye of authorities after a video of one of the crimes got worldwide attention. Gay former X-Factor UK contestant Alexander Bohun was also terrorized in another video that recently came to light.

Voactiv has been following Martsinkevich via his various social media accounts, and is reporting that he’s been in Cuba since around December 10. Since Russians are only allowed to stay in Cuba without a visa for 30 days, his time may be running out.

Though Martsinkevich is a wanted criminal, he has an interesting idea of how he’d like to serve his time. Voactiv has translated a blog post on his site, where he shares the following about his situation:

Contrary to Interpol statutes, there has been an international arrest warrant issued in my name. I do not recognize my guilt. I am currently in Latin America and do not have the money to return to Russia.

Given the above and thinking logically, I ask the following:

To hold the questioning and trial in the open for the mass media to observe, with me being present via Skype. In case of conviction, I offer to serve the prison term virtually, by placing an avatar behind bars for the amount of time designated by the court.

That would be fair and just, and would help bring about legal innovation.

We’re not sure how a “virtual prison sentence” would work, but perhaps this violent criminal isn’t the person who it should be tested out on.

Hopefully the LGBT community in Cuba is on high alert that this thug is in their midst, finds him, and boots him right back to Russia where he can serve his sentence behind bars. Real ones.

    Be a shame if someone had already notified certain parties of his whereabouts. If you catch the already done drift.


    Somebody in Cuba now reading this please kill him. Seriously, KILL THIS MAN! BRUTALLY. We need to go full-out world wide vengeance on these motherfuckers. Hunt down and destroy like Nazi vermin hey are

    @PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID: They’re WAY ahead of you, given he’s ripped off the Russian mafia I should think he’ll turn up dead soon enough.

    “Placing an avatar behind bars” is like the old joke where the amputee talks the judge into sentencing only his artificial limb to prison.

    There’s another movement that separated from this one: Occupy Gerontophilia. It’s targeted at teenagers who want to have sex with adults (to “protect” them from corruption). Leader of this group is a 16 years old Philipp Razinsky, they search for boys in internet, and humiliate them on camera just like Martsinkevich did. Also there were messages that some victims of these crimes were raped under the threat of disclosure of their sexual orientation

    What an asshole. If he were really considered an enemy of Russia he would be already glowing under the Cuban sun thanks to radiation poisoning.

    I wish real life would be like movies where he meets a just punishment for his wrongdoings.

    I smell a scam. Russia’s just pretending to clean up its anti-gay act because of the upcoming Sochi Olympics. This is just propaganda promoted by Putin’s corrupt government to trick us into going to Sochi or watching it on the Telly.

    I’m not buying it. I’m boycotting the Olympics and its sponsors – which can be found here if you care to join in.

    @oldbrit: Sadly it isn’t quite as straight laced, from what I’ve read he ripped the local Mafia crack dealers off for a load of money, and the Russian “police” are using the anti LGBT crime as a cover for getting him.

    Sadly Russia don’t even care enough to pretend to give a toss.

    A nice gang rape prison style with a billy club should be his punishment. Wish he came to the USA. Anyone want to send him an invitation and a one way ticket? He would probably be more protected in the USA by FOX and conservative Christians, and they’d say he was using his first amendment right, forgetting he is from Russia, because they are that stupid they would use that excuse to try and protect him. So, please send him to the East Coast: NY or Boston, I would not feel guilty smashing his face into the ground while his ass is slammed!

    He found the right place. Cuban attitudes towards gays mimic their Soviet/Russian communist era cousins.
