Russian lawmakers unanimously approved a bill that will ban all forms of LGBTQ “propaganda,” according to a final reading Thursday.
The approval comes amid President Vladimir Putin’s move to transform Russia into the antithesis of destructive Western liberal values.
The new bill will broaden Russia’s already existing laws banning so-called “gay propaganda” for minors, and effectively ban any public mention of gay relationships.
But Rights activists argue the new legislation ramps up the crackdown on LGBTQ relationships.
The law will affect all forms of media and also include books, social media posts and even drag shows.
Putin is continuing to push conservative values to rally his core constituency.
“Any propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations will have consequences,” Vyacheslav Volodin, the speaker of Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, said on Telegram.
The legislation, he said, “will protect our children and the future of the country from the darkness spread by the US and European states.”
“We have our own traditions and values,” he added.

The bill also prohibits the “propaganda of pedophilia and sex change.”
The legislation bans LGBTQ “propaganda” in advertisements, books, media, and cinema.
Those caught violating the law could face hefty fines.
Here are the punishments for those who violate the new laws:
- Anyone found violating the laws by spreading LGBT “propaganda” to children faces fines of up to five million rubles (£69,977/$81,267) and four million rubles (£55,981/$65,014) if the recipients are adults.
- Foreigners who breach the law face being deported from the country and a 400,000 ruble (£5,598/$6,501) fine.
- Russians who promote pedophilia will face even harsher fines of up to ten million rubles (£139,966/$162,535).
Meanwhile, Russian film production companies and book publishers pushed back against the bill, saying it could ban some Russian classics, such as Vladimir Nabokov’s “Lolita.”
“Films that promote such relationships will not receive a distribution certificate,” the Duma said.
Nice try, Putin – gotta give you credit for trying, but I know ya’ll tried to outlaw rock music years ago, too. Freedom comes with responsibility but simply destroying freedom over an issue isn’t the answer. But since America, like Russia, has rejected God’s words, then Ka Sarah, Sarah.
p**s off globalist c**t.
It’s Que Sera Sera, Putin isn’t quite all there, but he’s right about this.
That would shut all the networks down in the U.S.
Certainly wish we could do the same thing.
GOOD. Russians know whats up.
Like most people, the Russians really don’t care about one’s boudoir, bidet, or barnyard activity unless one happens to be a participant in the above stated activities.
It’s the parading it in everyone’s face especially the children’s faces, and demanding that the people accept their aberrant behavior that’s getting the swisher sweets hurt and killed.
Exactly. When the pillow biters learn to just shut up and do what you are going to do and stop insisting everyone know about it, then, things will be good.
Nobody cares until you try to FORCE them to care, then they will care in the opposite direction.
If it’s ok to censor misinformation, then this fits the bill.
The incessant racial and sexual deviant whiners, their nonsensical demands, and (for the alphabet people), their pressing perversions onto children have moved me from once supportive to now both being racist and homophobic AND feeling good about it. These groups have become so odious they have created righteous indignation among main stream Americans (and apparently Russians). We are seeing only the rising waves of a coming tsunami as the backlash is building.
It takes an IEPO (infinitely entitled, perpetually offended) to be blind to what’s happening. I predict the alphabet people will be pushed back into the margins of society…and they brought it all on themselves for not speaking out loudly and policing the behavior of their own kind. And I predict militant blacks are going to set racial acceptance back 40 years. Don’t get me wrong. I have friends I love who are black and friends who deal with same-s*x attraction. I still love them and I resent the hurt they experiencing by association, through no fault of their own. But society moves in predictable patterns, and anybody who can read the tea leaves realizes main stream Americans have had enough. The coming hammer is going to hurt.
It would be beneficial to the societal health of the USA, if mental illness wasn’t celebrated by leftists.
Russia has proven that they are morally superior to the USA.
Better than the shadow forces controlling Mockingbird Media in these States, and forcing it all on us relentlessly 24/7.
I’m libertarian but without the unceasing propaganda frim the Beast’s operatives things would have stayed more normal.
please do that here.
the qwerty thugs need to stick to the closet and stop the pedo groomer thing on the children……….. everything be cool
Propaganda stands for BULLSHI!, False information & the media in the U.S. is ALL BULLSHI! all the time.
The MSM in America must be dealt with if we are to have hope in this country. Our MSM does it for profit and the Democrat party, I’m not sure why Russian media would go against the leadership, it doesn’t sound profitable in Russia but it could have an audience.
Very nice Russia!
