Applause from church circles: Putin declares war on "gay propaganda".

Vladimir Putin is committed to defending Russia's "traditional values". To this end, the head of the Kremlin signs a decree in Moscow that demonizes "propaganda for non-traditional sexual relations". He received applause from church circles for the step.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a decree to defend the country against threats from other states and "gay propaganda". The decision, signed by the head of the Kremlin, emphasizes the importance of "traditional values ​​as the basis of Russian society". Moscow must take "urgent measures" to ward off threats from terrorist organizations, "certain mass media" as well as from the USA and "other unfriendly foreign countries".

According to the decree, the country's "traditional values" must also be defended against threats from "certain organizations and people on Russian soil". These could bring "foreign" thoughts into society and cause "the destruction of the traditional family structure with propaganda for non-traditional sexual relationships".

A representative of the Russian Orthodox Church welcomed the decree. This could "protect our people and our children from contamination," senior cleric Fyodor Lukyanov told the state news agency TASS.

The Russian parliament is currently discussing expanding a controversial law enacted in 2013 that bans "gay propaganda" aimed at minors. An extension of the law to adults is also under discussion. According to human rights activists, any mention of same-sex couples would be banned in the future.
