REPORT: Russian Neo-Nazis Attack Gay Contestant On Ukrainian X-Factor Show

According to a report filed by Spectrum Human Rights, the Russian anti-gay and neo-Nazi group Occupy Pedophilia has posted a video that shows the torture and humiliation of Alexander Bohun, who recently appeared on Ukraine's version of X Factor.  A Russian news site reports that Bohun had responded to a personal ad posted on the social media site VK, only to find the thugs waiting from him.  From a translation of the article:
One of the participants of the show X Factor Alexander Bohun accused the founder of the movement “Occupy Pedophilia”, Maxim Martsenkevich (“Cleaver” or “Slasher”), to have beaten him. For this reason, the Department of the Interior Ministry of the Leninsky District in Sebastopol (Crimea), has opened a criminal investigation into the matter, reports TSN. According to Alexander Bohun, Martsenkevich has beaten him repeatedly, intimidated him by violence and forced him to make a series of false statements in front of the camera. “I was referred to as “pedophile” illegally, mocked, and forced to admit actions and desires that I have not committed in any circumstances, and I had to admit all that publicly”, he said.

The counsel of the star, Elena Kherson, said that Martsenkevich broke the law, accusing a man of a crime without any investigation or trial. "There is no evidence of the involvement of Alexander Bohun in the crime of which 'Slasher' accused him," she said. "And most importantly, he is the victim." In addition, she said she wanted to lift the ban on dissemination of the video where Alexander Bohun admitted he was a pedophile. In those shoots, we can see Martsenkevich shaving the head of the singer, painting it with a rainbow marker, making him drink a cup of urine and pouring it in a few gallons on his head.”
Last month Martsenkevich reportedly fled Russia after being charged with inciting ethnic and social hatred for crimes exactly like those in today's report. A one-minute clip of the attack on Bohun can be seen here. Below is what appears to be Bohun's publicity shot from X Factor.
RELATED: According to a Russian-language entry on Wikipedia, Martsenkevich has twice been imprisoned for inciting racial hatred. He completed a three year sentence last year.  Google Image has many photos of Martsenkevich flexing his muscles and torturing young men.
