"Alexander Ermoshkin was on his way to release rainbow-colored balloons symbolizing support for LGBT rights Sunday when he was attacked in the center of Khabarovsk, a city in the Russian Far East.

Ermoshkin has organized “rainbow flash mobs” since 2008, according to a profile by photographer Misha Friedman.

Video shared by activists online shows a man chasing Ermoshkin as he walks away from the car he arrived in."
