Family Attacked And Blind Gay Man, Son Was Dating Him, Made Him Gay

Oleg Malenko. on the right, (left his brother) was dating the victim
for more than a year but the family and his brother above said the victim made Oleg, gay. 
Oleg never complained for 19 months of not enjoying his sex or dating relationship with the victim who ended up permanently blinded. I know about situations like this in which the family used an excuse to defend their son but crucify his partner. This falls on the son to defend his partner or break up. In Haines City Florida, the same happened to me. I made their GAY son gay, said his grandmother and his father. I was ready to go, and leave even though he and I had a written agreement as I recalled but I did not want to fight this dirty family as it comes to families. For instance, the son or anybody I asked did not know how the father made his money. He went to work with a cross pen on his clean shirt and got into his old Mercedes and went to work mon-Fri. and came back in the afternoon. An Archie Bunker type,. No one knew what he did for all those years he was doing this. He and I had our confrontations. I was not nice to him when I hear about the stupid things my partner would tell me he said because his mom told him and this Archie (Willian)Told her. You tell me if this was not a very sick family and I figured it out at the end before they call the cops because I threw a phone at him. This is something I should have fought but the son picked me up and took me to court and never pressed charges. They did. I could fight it but the last fight happened while my mother was with me and I knew I could not get tied down in Florida. This was in Haines city not far from Orlando.  Now I see what happened to this victim and these old memories coming back. My last relationship. I gave up my horse and where I lived to move to Haines City. My partner was the one who said he would back me up when I moved in after visiting and everyone was excited their son had a company. "A big brother" his 250-300Lbs 5'.3" woman Edith (forgot her real name), was in control and kept everyone pissed at each other. Oleg should have protected his partner. I would not doubt if he took part in the beating. This is the second time I write about this situation and will continue until this is clear to me. The victim is asked that the police do not reveal about him and in Fl, there is a law that protects the victim that way. He most is closeted because in situations like this you want as many people to know. Why protect others. And for my story, I have put things behind me and don't even remember the mother's name or their last name All I have to do is a search on my computer but I'm happy I have forgotten. Never had one happy peaceful day with the Bunkers. We had a house surrounded by grandma, grad pa, sis, and the Monsters family, no Monsters were a good loving family these were more like a bad version of the Bunkers. Eventually, he married and got a daughter. But he married a black girl they hated because they hate black and Hispanics which was the real basis for their hatred I think and my balls. My balls> yes my balls. we had a family reunion and his father started a threatening conversation I told him to go ahead he had no balls and mine was much bigger. I know some of my gay readers will read this and say he had no right o describe his balls. But this was the end there was nothing to repair only to try to not turn it into what this family did., not the gay thing. I thought his father was going to kill me because I had reduced him down to nothing but obviously he was used to it. But he walked with a gun and so it forced me in some situations to do the same. Thanks to my mom.

A Florida man was brutally beaten and blinded by members of his boyfriend’s family because they believed the man “made” their son gay, according to court documents.
Prosecutors allege that Inna Makarenko, 44; Yevhen Makarenko, 43; and two of their adult sons, Oleh, 21, and Vladyslav, 25, ambushed the man at his apartment in Pompano Beach last August and beat him so badly that they left him severely injured in a pool of his own blood for about 14 hours.

 The reason for the attack, the man told deputies, was because of his relationship with Oleh, whom he had been dating for about nine months.

“Unfortunately, your son’s gay,” the man reportedly told Inna as the family was allegedly attacking him. The 31-year-old man has asked authorities to withhold his identity under Marsy’s Law, which allows alleged victims to keep “information or records that could be used to locate or harass the victim or the victim’s family” from being released.

The Makarenkos are all charged with first-degree attempted murder, burglary with battery, and kidnapping. Prosecutors “enhanced” the charges for Inna, Yevhen, and Oleh under the state’s hate-crime law, meaning the three face up to life in prison on each of the three counts. 

Vladyslav, who does not face the upgraded charges, was extradited from Alabama and joined his family at the Broward County jail. Paula McMahon, a spokeswoman for the Broward State Attorney’s Office, told The Washington Post that Vladyslav is expected to be charged next week.

The attorney’s office has accused the family of “severely beating a man based on his sexual orientation.” In a statement announcing the hate-crime charges, prosecutors said the man “has been permanently blinded and sustained other serious injuries as a result of the incident.”
“He stated that the reason for this attack was because he was a homosexual, was dating Oleh, and that the family felt that he made Oleh a homosexual,” the warrant said. 

Michael Glasser, the family’s attorney, did not immediately respond to a request for comment early Friday. Glasser told WFOR last week that the family denies attacking the man and said the victim’s credibility should be questioned because he waited six months to make the allegations against the Makarenkos.

“Many, if not all of them, didn’t even know this person in any way shape, or form and they adamantly denied being there at the residence for any of the incidents,” Glasser told the outlet. “Thus far, there’s really been scant and borderline nothing remotely compelling that points to this family having anything to do with this poor guy’s injuries.”

LGBTQ issues have been at the forefront of debate in Florida. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) earlier this month signed into law the Parental Rights in Education bill, which critics have labeled the “don’t say gay” law. The measure bans instruction or classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity issues in kindergarten through third grade and also empowers parents to sue a school district over teachings they don’t like.

LGBTQ advocates say the measure furthers efforts in the state to paint the LGBTQ community as “other,” or even dangerous, and gay rights groups have sued Florida over the law, arguing that it violates the constitutionally protected rights of free speech, equal protection, and due process of students and families. But DeSantis and Republicans have stood firm in defending the law, with the government arguing that it protects against “sexualizing kids in kindergarten.”

The 31-year-old man started dating Oleh sometime in late 2020, with Oleh sleeping over many times and even having a key to the man’s apartment, according to court records. Their relationship shifted in the summer of 2021, when Yevhen, Oleh’s father, “found out that he was homosexual,” according to the warrant. At a time when the father “was treating [Oleh] poorly and was not accepting him,” Oleh had also allegedly mentioned to his boyfriend that his mother “was going to force him to marry a woman.”

On. Aug. 6, 2021, the man thought something was weird when Oleh asked for his address, even though he had visited regularly for months, prosecutors say. About 1 a.m., the man opened the gate and saw not just Oleh but also his family, whom the man recognized from photos, the warrant says. Oleh, who the man said appeared nervous, yelled, “Go inside!”
Then, the family allegedly chased the man and forced their way into his South Florida apartment. All four family members “continued holding [the victim] and began punching, kicking and hitting [him] all over his face, head, and body,” according to the warrant.
When the man told Inna that Oleh was gay, the victim stated, “one of them grabbed an unknown object, and struck him in the face.”

“After falling to the floor, he pretended to be dead so they would believe he was dead and stop beating him,” the warrant said.

About 3 p.m., about 14 hours after the attack, a Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy, who was at the complex for an unrelated event, noticed the door to the man’s apartment open. The deputy entered the apartment and saw the man lying on the floor covered in his own blood, court records show.

The victim did not immediately tell police what happened, claiming he had been drinking and fell. About six months later, he told prosecutors that “his memory of the incident” had returned and sought to press charges against Oleh and his family.

Prosecutors say that the man was blinded and suffered extensive injuries as a result of the attack, including brain swelling, severe bruising, multiple fractures in his facial bones, a fractured jaw, and a concussion. His medical bills have exceeded $100,000, according to court records. The man, who has undergone four surgeries and is expected to undergo at least two more, “has been told he will most likely never regain eyesight in either eye again,” according to the warrant.

Despite the allegations, supporters of the Makarenkos have proclaimed the family’s innocence. An online petition in support of them describes the Makarenkos as Ukrainian refugees who came to the United States six years ago and operate the thriving door and interior design renovation companies.

Among those proclaiming the family’s innocence is Christina Herman, who is Oleh’s fiancee. She told WPLG she does not believe Oleh, who also goes by Alex, is gay.

“I have proof,” Herman said. “I wear a ring which is an engagement and one kind of marriage ring. I know Alex has his ring in jail. That is proof to me. I know we are in a relationship.”
But Broward Sheriff’s Detective Conor Ryan wrote in the warrant that the man’s allegations and other evidence points to a potential hate crime.

“This crime was a senseless and unprovoked attack done onto a homosexual man, just due to the mere fact that he was homosexual,” Ryan wrote.
Inna is scheduled to appear for a bond hearing on Monday afternoon, McMahon said. None of the other family members has hearings scheduled as of early Friday.
