In an interview with Newsmax, Cruz said: Although Russian law enforcement authorities have made some attempts to prosecute anti-LGBT violence, victims face anti gay military insurmountable obstacles seeking justice. The result is widespread impunity for homophobic crimes. Law enforcement agencies deliberately ignore hatred of Gaj people as a key criminal motive behind the attacks.
Although Russia has hate crime laws, Russian law enforcement agencies do not treat even the most anti gay military homophobic violence as hate crimes.
Not a single case documented in this report was investigated as a hate crime. Police treat most homophobic attacks as common crime, such as hooliganism or assault and battery.
