Ноябрь 22, 2011

MOSCOW, November 17, 2011    The authorities in Moscow are now proposing to introduce a Bill that will outlaw the “promotion of homosexuality”, it emerged this afternoon.

The move comes less than 48 hours after the legislature in Russia’s ‘second city’, St. Petersburg, passed the first of three readings by a 27-1 (with one abstention) margin of their measure, ‘The Promotion of Homosexuality, Lesbianism, and Transgenderism to Minors.

The Moscow authorities are already preparing a ban on the promotion of homosexuality, the newspaper Gazeta is reporting.

«Yes, we plan to adoption of this law in Moscow and now [are] just working on its development,” chairman of the Moscow City Council Committee on Health Care and Public Health, Lyudmila Stebenkova told the newspaper, adding that the committee “commends the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg”.

Anton Paleeva, who chairs the committee for public associations and religious organizations in the Moscow City Duma, said that the proposed law in Moscow “will help everyone”.

“Such propaganda should be stopped,” he told Gazeta.

According to Ekho Moskvy, the Speaker of the Moscow City Duma, Vladimir Platonov, says that the capital was ready to follow the example of St. Petersburg.

The Ryazan region was the first to introduce an ‘any-gay’ law, with Arkhangelsk having a similar measure in place before St. Petersburg started its process.
