Russian politician stalks local gay clubs to crack down on ‘gay sex on stage’

Joseph McCormick December 15, 2014

A Russian politician has spearheaded a raid on a gay club allegedly because a number of parents said their teenagers were trapped inside.

Vitaly Milonov, who has become synonymous with a crackdown on LGBT rights in Russia, with the help of a local riot squad, performed the raid on St Petersburg club Central Station.

Initially trying to gain entry, but being denied access by bouncers, Vitaly attended in plain clothes, and recruited the riot squad to force his way in.

After gaining entry to the fetish night along with a film crew from Fontana, Milonov then proceeded to check the ID of those inside.

Finding several teenagers who were too young to be in the club, Milonov proceeded to escort them to the police station.

He claimed there was a 15-year-old there, who “saw what a 15-year-old should never see.”

“We found around 20 teenagers there that were practically having sex on the stage,” Milonov told Baltinfo news agency.

Milonov authored the St Petersburg “gay propaganda” law which was passed locally, then adopted federally back in 2013.

It bans the “promotion of non-traditional relations” to minors.
