Blogger Gela Gogishvili was fined 100,000 rubles under an administrative article on “LGBT propaganda and gender reassignment” among minors (Article 6.21 of the Code of Administrative Offenses). This was reported in the Telegram channel of Gogishvili and his partner Haoyang Xu.
Young people who until recently lived in Kazan were detained by the police on April 5. Gogishvili was released after the protocol was drawn up. The next day, the court found Chinese citizen Haoyang Xu guilty of distributing "LGBT propaganda", sentenced him to seven days of administrative arrest and ordered him to be expelled from the country. The reason for the persecution was the YouTube channel run by the couple.
After Haoyang Xu left the detention center, the young people left Russia. As the OVD-Info project reported with reference to human rights activists, in Xu's homeland they are accused of "deliberately worsening diplomatic relations between China and Russia", because of this, his friends have already been interrogated.
