Three French gay rights groups have filed a complaint at the International Criminal Court accusing Chechnya of the genocide of gay people.

They blamed Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov and state officials for a “wave of persecution”, and cited the case of a teenage male thrown out of a ninth-storey window, allegedly because of his sexuality.

The three French groups want the International Criminal Court in The Hague to start work before Russia withdraws from its jurisdiction in November.

There’s the problem.
