  1. An important news article, and I thank you for bringing this to my attention, but again this article is marred with errors of grammar and sentence structure. I mean, just take the title as an example: “All Swedish couples banned from adoption Russian children over same-sex marriage”. That should quite clearly be “All Swedish couples banned from *adopting* Russian children over same-sex marriage.” Pull your socks up, folks!

  2. Will it ever end? Adolph Putin and his thugs must realize that preventing other states from adopting children, only puts more stress on its own economy.
    The fact that other nations are adopting Russian orphans in the first place, exposes just how much they care about their young. So this excuse that ‘gay families psychologically damage the minds of children’ is not only an ugly untruth, but an obvious disingenuous one.

    btw, like the new make-over, PN.

    So if 50% of paedophiles are gay as they claim, what about the remaining 50% who one would assume must be straight Russians but mentions nothing about them adopting children and how would they know based on their sexual orientation?

    The persecution is amplified. Now it becomes racist towards the Swedish. Russia is regressing and degenerating.

    How many Swedish orphans do the Russians adopt?

    Why are the Russians punishing their own children by denying them possible parents (who would provide them decent dental care!)?

  6. Why are we having the Olmypic Games in Russia of all places?

  7. Putin and his genocidal cohorts don’t want gay children adopted into regions where their human rights are actually protected. It is more of his crimes against humanity.

    Russia is circling the drain and looking for scapegoats. 1 in 5 there have HIV from IV drug use and they blame us. Get out any way you can. It’s not like gay people told them to go shoot up strange chemicals.

    1. Your right, I didn’t know they had such a drug problem. According to this BBC article from Nov 2012, only 0.9% of HIV cases are down to men on men sex.

    This only reflects on Russia….Russia without love….for its children and its gay people.

    They will soon run out of civilised countries qualified to adopt.

  11. Other countries need to offer asylum to LGBT Russians immediately.
    This is progressing fast and no other nation is doing anything to prevent this spiral.
    Russia is already planning removing children from homes where there is a LGBT family member. This is an extension of that bigoted law, where so many things can now be justified for “protection of children”.
    Harvey Fierstein has already stated that he is aware of a same sex couple with kids from a previous relationship who are seeking to flee the country because of the threat that their kids will be snatched from them.

    How long will it be before the radicals there claim that the mere existence of LGBT people is a “threat”?

    Swedish diplomacy is fighting with these matters, so maybe there will be a positive solution? 13 couples are affected by this right now, and some of them have already furnished child rooms for their dear ones, with toys and everything. (— they have already met them at different orphanages ! Too many orphans in Russia, that’s for sure ! Dear friends ! Write to Your embassies and make complaints -

  13. Isn’t it strange that in Russia where they claim they to care so much about ‘family values’ there are still so many children who need to be adopted while in immoral Sweden there are so very few.

  14. The trouble with conflating homosexuality with paedophilia as Vitaly Milonov does is that nothing he says makes any sense to the rest of the world who can distinguish the difference between the two.
    His attempt to scapegoat homosexuals suggests that Vitaly Molonov is himself a paedophile abuser and he is trying to divert attention and scrutiny away from himself and his paedophile ring in the Russian Orthodox church.

    In 2012 Sweden adopted 39 children from Russia. All of them to “straight couples”. In 2011, 3000 children were adopted from Russia to different countries around the world. ( Russia was second after China ! ) I have a strong feeling that Sweden will manage to get an agreement with Russia. But that other countries will have major problems with gettng an approval. Sad ! I’ve just been looking at pictures from Russian orphanages. So many lovely children- so many lonesome eyes. —And so much love around our world urging to embrace them ! These decisions are inhuman and criminal , dear Russia. STOP IT !

    No wonder the Russian people are putting into laws legislation the homo-lobby deem ‘homophobic’ .

    Criminal Code: Sexual relations and other action of a sexual nature with a person under the age of sixteen (16), Chapter 18, Article 134
    Sexual intercourse, buggery ['muzhelozhstvo'] or lesbianism, committed by a person over 18 on a person admittedly under 14 is punishable by limitation of freedom up to three years or deprivation of freedom up to four years [R1.2].

    1. Another brainwashed idiot can’t distinguish between LGBT people and pedophiles. Stuff like this should lead to an instant ban.

      1. Ray is a self-hating troll, he can’t stay away from the PN comments boards.

        The paedophile couple in the article he links to are despicable monsters, the child is the biological offspring of one of them through surrogacy which makes the abuse of the child just that much more horrific if that is possible, their pathologically criminal condition and situation has little to do with ordinary same sex couples who want to adopt a child to give it a loving, caring home and to create a happy family.
        Ray knows this but he is a troll after all and he’s trying to flame.
