Duma deputies have supported an amendment to the criminal code "On criminal liability for propaganda of homosexuality"


Just recently the Legislative Assembly Committee of Legality and Social Safety of Ivanovskaya oblast has supported an amendment to the Criminal Code "On criminal liability for propaganda of homosexuality", proposed for a discussion earlier.

This initiative, as is well known, was brought to the Russian State Duma by a homophobic deputy Alexander Chuev in the middle of September.

As his initiative has found no support by parliamentarians, the authors of this homophobic draft do not give up hope to pass it through  regional Legislative Assemblies. If the draft will be supported by the majority of them, the State Duma will have to reconsider this norms, that, as experts say, contradict with the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
