The State Duma should abolish the adoption of the law on homosexual propaganda!

Statement by YABLOKO's Gender Faction

December 18, 2012

On December 19, 2012, the State Duma is going to pass a bill targeted against a part of our society, namely, people belonging to the LGBT community (Lesbian - Gay - Bisexual - Transgender) under the pretext of taking care of children who for some reason should not know about people with other view points and habits.

In the West and other parts of the world the states have ceased to look under their citizens blankets prescribing how and with whom they should have sex. Moreover, many countries have legalised gay marriages, and even adoption of children by such couples.

This shameful law against different people disseminating hatred and ousting part of our compatriots into ghettos is virtually accusing them of inferiority. The adoption of such a law means returning of the Soviet law on "sodomy" envisaging criminal prosecution or even refers to the Nazis "final solution of the problem" of homosexuality in gas cameras.

The Gender Faction of the YABLOKO party demands abolishing of this disgraceful law if we have a "democratic state" "recognising and guaranteeing human and civil rights and freedoms," as is envisaged by the Constitution of the Russian Federation.

Galina Mikhalyova,

Chair of YABLOKOs Gender Faction
