Yesterday, the lower House of the Federal Assembly, unanimously passed a bill that makes the “promotion” of homosexuality to anyone under 18 illegal. it is now forbidden to tell anyone under 18, that gay people exist. President Vladimir Putin supports the bill and will sign it. Anti-gay violence broke out instantly in Moscow.
“During the melee, an unidentified Duma official from the Communist Party approached and shook hands with a policeman: ‘So are you guys ramping up the pressure on these faggots? Beat them up well! Cut their balls off!,’” said Versha Sharma at Vocativ .
I don’t know what to say…I’m totally shocked. I feel like Russia is going backwards and I don’t know if we can do anything?
I’m sending all my love and thoughts to all our friends and users in Russia!
