Central Station, a popular Moscow gay club, sustained what was described as a “gas attack” Saturday night.
In the night of November, 23 a well-known Moscow gay club “Central Station” was again under attack. Unknown malefactors sprayed some harmful gas inside the club among about 500 attendees. Several people sought medical attention but refused to go to a hospital.
The club staff immediately turned on a smoke removal machine which eliminated the gas from the premises in a couple of minutes, LifeNews reports.
“Today is the fourth provocation against the club arranged by unknown persons. We believe that they are connected with the building owner”, says Andrey Leschinsky, the club general director. “They are spaying the gas inside the club premises, thereby trying to express their extremist views against LGBT community, which likes to visit our club”.
On the previous Saturday, security cameras caught two men harassing patrons outside Central Station, and then shot at the club’s exterior when security refused their admission. No one was injured. Police have not made any arrests in either incident.
