Russia: Creators of truth or dare game fined under ‘gay propaganda’ law

Nick Duffy August 6, 2014

The Russian creators of a truth-or-dare style card game have been hit with a fine, for ‘promoting’ homosexuality among minors.

A court in Smolensk ruled against the creators of card game ‘Fanty’, hitting them with 45000 roubles (£742) fine under the country’s ‘gay propaganda’ law.

According to the Moscow Times, a spokesperson for Demilov District Court said the game, listed as suitable for ages 12 and up, contained elements that ‘promoted’ non-traditional sexual relations to minors.

The game, made by Kometa Plyus, allegedly included some cards which dared players to pretend to be in a relationship with an action figure, or with another player.

An ‘expert psychological review’ had previously concluded that the game would “have a negative effect on psychosexual personality development” of children.

It was pulled from stores of the Katyusha toy company last year.

Vladimir Putin was recently mocked with a toy pencil holder in his likeness, with an opening in his rear for pencils to be inserted.
