  1. Vladimir Putin has exposed his Achilles heel which is that he is stupid and allowing himself to be manipulated by the Russian Orthodox Church.
    When is he going to take responsible action against homophobia to show us that he is not the brainless puppet we see presently.

    It was a shame how he carried on

    1. “The law makes it an offence…to communicate to Russian children and young people that love between two women or two men is “just as socially valuable” as that between a man and a woman.

      The fines outlined in the draft law vary from 100 euros ($133) for private individuals to more than 23,000 euros for companies or organizations. If the “propaganda” is spread via the media, the fines can be 10 or 20 times higher. For example, if someone writes in a blog that homosexual love is okay, he or she risks being fined up to 2,000 euros in Russia. Companies and organizations would pay a far higher price and can even be closed down for up to 90 days.”
