Every year on May 17, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia is celebrated. It has been celebrated since 2005 at the initiative of various human rights defender organizations. The purpose of the day is to raise awareness about discrimination and violence against LGBT people.

ECHR judgement on the case of the DIY pub
Ten years ago, after the explosion of DIY pub, a criminal case was initiated predicated on the cause of property damage, not taking into account that the crime was committed on the basis of hatred. The First Instance Court sentenced the criminals to two years imprisonment; however, the sentence was not conditionally executed. Later, the Court of Cassation upheld the judgment by the First Instance Court.
Later on, an application was submitted to the European Court of Human Rights, which will announce its verdict on May 17, 2022.
