I Rusland har flere regioner vedtaget at forbyde homofil propaganda. Nu forbereder det russiske underhus et landsdækkende forbud, skriver Russia Today:
“We’ve agreed that it’s wrong to hide behind the backs of regional lawmakers,” Yelena Mizulina, the head of the State Duma Committee for Family, Women and Children told journalists on Thursday… The MP is confident that “a certain control over homosexual behavior is necessary in a democratic society.” It is needed to prevent corruption of minors and their usage for lucrative purposes, she said, as cited by RIA Novosti.
Children, when they grow up, should have an opportunity to decide themselves what sort of sexual relations they want to have, Mizulina, a Fair Russia deputy believes. They should mature “in a normal, adequate” atmosphere…
The bill was submitted to the State Duma earlier this year by the Novosibirsk region legislature. Under the proposal, homosexual propaganda could be punished by a fine of up to 5,000 roubles ($162) for individuals and 50,000 ($1,620) for officials. If a legal entity is found guilty of such an offence, it will have to pay a fine of up to 500,000 roubles ($16,200).
