Homophobic, Neo-Nazi Criminal Flees to Cuba

From Towleroad:

Maxim Martsinkevich, the leader of the homophobic vigilante group "Occupy" that has lured and tortured a number of gay teens in Russia before posting its exploits to social media, has been on the lam for several months now, and Vocativ reports that he has turned up in Cuba:

Heads up, Cuba. The muscular, mohawk-sporting Maxim Martsinkevich, head of fascist “Okkupay” groups in Russia that track and beat up anyone they consider aberrant, has left the motherland for Castro’s tropical socialist paradise.

Maxim, also known as “Tesak” (Russian for cleaver), bounced to Ukraine first, and is now in Cuba. Russian news site Life News ran an interview with him Wednesday.

According to posts on Martsinkevich’s VKontakte social networking page, he was in Cuba as early as December 10. According to the visa agreement between Russia and Cuba, Russians are allowed to stay without a visa for 30 days. That means he either needs to get a visa now, stay illegally or leave. And he says he doesn’t have the money to fly home.

In a post on his blog today, he talks about flying from Kiev to Havana via Frankfurt, and expounds on the lack of virtues of the German airport. Martsinkevich does not find German women attractive. He says nothing about his visa situation or future travel plans.
