A scapegoat someone to focus the people’s attention away from what they are doing. Hitler had the Jews, gypsies, and us.

Now in Chechnya the same thing is happening and this time it is the Muslims and us.

The names of 27 people slaughtered in a single night by Chechen authorities have been published.
The secret mass execution is thought to have seen up to 56 people killed – all without trial.

The executions were all carried out in Chechnya’s capital, Grozny, on the night of 25 January, the newspaper claims.

According to the strongly anti-Putin publication, mass arrests and executions in the Muslim region were triggered by the killing of a policeman on 16 December 2016.

Early reports emerged earlier this month that gay people are being targeted in the region, which is part of Russia but has substantial autonomy.

Russian newspapers and human rights groups report that more than 100 gay men have been detained “in connection with their non-traditional sexual orientation, or suspicion of such” as part of a purge. Several people were also reportedly feared dead following violent raids.

Novaya Gazeta, an investigative newspaper based in the region, has published the names of 27 men killed in one night.

Responding to the published list, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov said: “We have taken note of [the reports].”

In an address to journalists, he added: “We have similarly taken note of the denials of this information by Chechen law enforcement bodies
This is scary that in this day of age what we thought just happened in Nazi Germany is once again happening.
