Internet users disbelieve fake video about gay parade in Nalchik

A video has appeared on the Internet about a gay parade, allegedly held in Nalchik. The "Life" TV Channel, whose logo stands on the video, asks residents of Kabardino-Balkaria not to react to the video, treating it as a fake. Most of the comments under the video indicate that people did not believe that it is true.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in early March activists submitted notifications, within the framework of the All-Russian LGBT campaign, about rallies in defence of the rights of sexual minorities in a number of cities. Local authorities refused to sanction the actions. On March 19, in Nalchik, a rally was held of opponents of the LGBT action in the city.

The "Life" denies its involvement in the video, claiming that unidentified persons created a fake, by using one of the reports of the TV Channel.

Among those, who left their comments to the video, there are users, who blame the TV Channel for spreading lies about the gay parade, which never took place; however, most of them noticed the fake and spoke out against any actions of people with non-traditional sexual orientation.

Full text of the article is available on the Russian page of 24/7 Internet agency ‘Caucasian Knot’.
