Kremlin Spox: If Trump Asks Putin About Chechen Persecution Of Gay Men, There Will Be An Answer

From Russia’s TASS agency:

US President Donald Trump’s possible question on the LGBT rights in Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Chechnya at the upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin won’t be left unanswered, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday.

“If there is such a question [on gay rights] then there will be an answer,” Peskov said, pledging: “We will inform you if this issue is raised.” Peskov refused to give more details and comment on an open letter published by President of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), Chad Griffin, who called on Trump to address the gay rights in Chechnya.

“This is a letter of a US organization to the US president. Probably, this is an issue for discussion between the US organization and the head of the United States,” Peskov said.
