  • LGBT activist killed in St. Petersburg was on punishers list

Russian campaigners said on Monday that a woman found murdered with multiple stab wounds in the city of Saint Petersburg was a well-known activist who had received threats over her protests for LGBT rights and opposition causes.

On Grigoryeva's Facebook page, supporters are posting messages that mourn her death and celebrate her life.

Closing August, dozens of LGBT rights activists were arrested during a banned philosophize in St Petersburg to advertise the rights of sexual minorities. She was known for taking part in multiple protests for LGBT rights, and pacifist demonstrations.

The woman was stabbed and allegedly stranged; the body found in the bushes was identified by oppositionists Alexander Khmelyov and Alexander Mironov. A suspect has been detained in connection with her murder, according to Fontanka. He said she had recently reported threats of violence to the police, but they took no action.

In a post on Facebook on Monday, activist Dinar Idrisov said his friend Ms Grigoryeva had been "brutally killed near her home".

She was also listed on a homophobic website that directed visitors to hunt down homosexual, bisexual and transgender people, Idrisov and local photojournalist George Markov said. Russia's internet watchdog banned the website last week.

Ms Grigoryeva, who had reportedly received death threats, regularly campaigned for human rights in Russian Federation.

"The reports concerned various domestic conflicts involving the victims' acquaintances", the ministry said, adding that the police reviewed them according to legal procedures.

Vladimir Putin signed a law against gay propaganda among minors in 2013 as the government stepped up promotion of traditional values and the Orthodox church exerting increasing influence on society.

In 2017, several people died after Russia's Chechnya republic began rounding up gay men en masse and torturing them in secret facilities.
