Russia’s Parliament Passes Law Banning the Distribution of LGBT & Pedophilia Propaganda

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Last Thursday, lower-level members of the State Duma, Russia’s parliament, unanimously passed a law to ban the distribution of materials promoting homosexuality, pedophilia, and gender reassignment. This new law will impose heavy penalties of up to 10 million rubles ($165,000 USD) on those stimulating such propaganda on online channels, media, or in public. Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin called the U.S. the “center of this sodom in the world” and said the law would protect Russia’s traditional values. The law still needs to be approved by the upper house and President Vladimir Putin.
