Russian LGBT Activists Ask U.S., Canada, E.U. to Bar Entry to Author of Anti-Gay Law and St. Petersburg Governor


Russian LGBT activists have asked the United States, EU, Canada, Germany, France and Australia to bar entry to Vitaly Milonov, the author of the censorial and oppressive gay 'propaganda' law, Russian paper Gazeta reports:

"Milonov and Poltavchenko have disgraced Russia all over the world. They have turned our country and its "culture capital" into the medieval barbaric times, what that means is that there is no place for them in the contemporary civilized countries. Milonov and Poltavchenko do not share the values of democracy, freedom and human rights. They cannot be allowed to spread their homophobic views abroad," the authors of the open letter to the EU and other countries wrote.
