Moscow: Three men who stabbed and kicked a man they believed to be gay and then set him on fire were convicted and handed jail terms in a strict-regime prison colony. The men were prosecuted for murder, not for a hate crime. The men “lured the man in his car to a deserted part of the forest. There, the eldest man stabbed the victim multiple times in the chest, face and neck, and two others kicked him.”  Finally they placed the 29-year-old victim in his car and set the vehicle alight using petrol, prosecutors said.
