Hello All! We are a couple from Russia, with her boyfriend live fifth year. Officially legalize their marriage in Denmark four months ago! We are haunted by neighbors, a couple of times changed the place of residence, but приследования still go on. I was fired from work when they learned that I was GAY, at the following place of work, a former employer, sends a negative description of my work((( With the adoption of this law, it was hard to live... Left from Moscow, near Moscow , but there is no peace... Help US ... as we move from Russia... Please HELP!!! Our friends went to Germany... have returned after seven months, they have been "NEGATIVE" ... they told all the terrible thing that are going on in a refugee camp. We are quite scary to live in such conditions!
