Channel 4 will broadcast a special Dispatches programme tonight about the abuse gay people suffer in Russia.
In Russia it is claimed that only 1% of gay people dare to live openly because of the homophobic attacks on the gay community.
Last year there are a number of attacks and even murders attributed to homophobia suffered by gay people.
The show is on at 10PM on Channel 4.
