Maxim Martsinkevich (right) is a declared militant homophobe and host of a popular online TV-show where gays are tricked into false dates. But instead of a romantic encounter, a band of armed ultra-nationalist are waiting to capture him. The victim is being sexual humiliated and tortured, while everything is filmed, posted publicly and shared online. According to the group more than 70 videos have been made so farĀ  - with more to come. The word 'FAGGOT' is written on the chest of this victim, and the TV logo in the corner bears the title 'NETTING THE FAGGOTS!'.
