    I have a plea : To all our Sisters and Brothers in Europe, as well as in other countries around the world. SUPPORT OUR STRONG FIGHTERS IN RUSSIA ! Send protests to Russian embassies and appeals to your local politicians. This degrading of people in Russia must not last for long. It is our duty to be greatful for the rights we have obtained, and work so that our friends in Russia shall have the very same freedom and possibilities. I cry today—but I cry BRAVE TEARS, and will send a tough message to the Russian Embassy here in Oslo, Norway.

        A warm hug from me, Colin (London) !

  2. Now Russia has it’s very own Section 28! (UK). Russia cannot be allowed to continue to have the same international influence with the rest of the world while such internal divisive homophobia takes place. The Duma voted 433 – 0 . No one dare to speak up for the LBGT community. Putin rules with fear and has become Europe’s new Hitler!

  3. I wonder if Putin has a holiday villa in Greece?

  4. Russia just cant loose its authotorian regime, cant it? Its democracy is crumbling day by day.

    Soon the overall violence in the country will rise again (already began) along with rampant corruption (already there), people will start fleeing Russia more than going in and soon the entire country will crumble and fall just like Soviet did. History will repeat again.
