About the auction beneficiaries:

In September, Marcus (Mr. Leather Russia) and his partner Nik, both of whom are members of Leathermen Scotland had to flee their homes in Russia to escape forced conscription to the war in Ukraine and because of the new anti-LGBT legislation; they are currently applying for asylum in another country, which could take from 3-21 months. During the asylum application process they will be unable to work and are living on their limited savings.

As public fetish figures, they have received threats online, and face prosecution if they were to return to Russia, they could also be forced to fight on the front line in Ukraine.
