A package of bills has been submitted to the State Duma on a complete ban on LGBT propaganda and pedophilia in Russia, including in the media, books, the Internet, advertising and cinema. This was announced by the Vice-Speaker of the State Duma, a deputy from United Russia Pyotr Tolstoy.
If this package is accepted, foreigners for LGBT “propaganda” will be expelled from Russia, as well as fined up to 800 thousand rubles. Russians face fines too.
According to the document, for the dissemination of data on the network that “propagates” gender reassignment among minors, a fine of up to four million rubles will be imposed. The same fine threatens for “propaganda” of LGBT people among adults on the Internet, and for “propaganda” among minors on the Internet, they will be fined up to five million rubles. For the "propaganda" of pedophilia in the network will be fined up to 10 million rubles.
According to Tolstoy, the bills are signed by almost 400 deputies, the first to support the initiative were 60 deputies who are members of the "inter-factional group for the protection of Christian values." Tolstoy called the decision to be taken by the Duma "obvious and long-awaited." According to the deputy, the previously introduced ban on LGBT propaganda among minors is no longer enough. He recalled that, in addition, the amendments propose to introduce a ban on the dissemination of information that induces minors to change their sex.
“If we consider the propaganda and approval of LGBT people as a tool of hybrid warfare (and no one has any doubts about this today), then it poses a danger not only to our children, but to the whole society. This is a law that protects future generations from the propaganda of perversions.
Russia, the deputy believes, has entered "a decisive stage in the battle for traditional family, moral and religious values," and the future of the country is at stake.
Earlier, the State Duma Committee on Information Policy proposed to ban "propaganda of non-traditional relations" in Russia, regardless of age. Deputy Alexander Khinshtein stated that the law would be considered in the autumn. It assumes administrative responsibility for "propaganda" regardless of the age of the audience (offline, media, Internet, social networks, as well as online cinemas).
