Russian President Vladimir Putin signed into law yesterday the total ban on LGBT, pedophilia, and sex change propaganda that was passed by the State Duma and the Federation Council last month.

Propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations to minors has been illegal in Russia since the relevant amendment to the Child Protection Law was adopted in 2013. Now the ban is extended to all propaganda, regardless of the audience.

The newly signed law also outlaws pro-pedophilia and sex-change propaganda, reports the State Duma.

For violating the ban on propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations or preferences:

  • citizens face a fine of 50-400,000 rubles ($795-$6,360)

  • public officials: 100-800,000 rubles ($1,590-$12,715)

  • legal entities: 800,000-5 million rubles ($12,715-$79,410) or the suspension of activity up to 90 days

For violating the ban on propaganda of pedophilia:

  • citizens: 200-800,000 rubles ($3,175-$12,715)

  • public officials: 400,000-2 million rubles ($6,360-$31,765)

  • legal entities: 1-10 million rubles ($15,880-$158,820) or the suspension of activity up to 90 days

For the dissemination among minors of information demonstrating non-traditional sexual relations or that is capable of causing them to want to change their gender:

  • citizens: 50-200,000 rubles ($795-$3,175)

  • public officials: 100-400,000 rubles ($1,590-$6,360)

  • legal entities: 800,000-4 million rubles ($12,715-$63,530) or the suspension of activity up to 90 days

Don’t say: “wicked Putin, wicked Russia.” Say: “wicked Biden, wicked U.S.”

I pray for Putin continually. This is what every country should be doing. Every state in the U.S. used to have laws like this. every state. Let me add this minor insignificant point: Every time some perverse legislation is introduced, it is by democrats. every time. 30 states had passed marriage amendments saying ONE MAN ONE WOMAN. Democrat president nominated 2 democrat witches to scotus, confirmed by democrat senate. those 2 teamed up with the 2 dems already on scotus. 4 Republicans voted to keep holy matrimony. 4 democrats voted to pervert it. Every councilman voting for perverse Bathroom Bill was democrat; every Republican voted against. NC House and Senate democrats voted to keep the perversion; Republicans to overturn the perversion. Every wicked perverse legistatiion is by democrats. Woke. transgender. homosex. lawless immigratiion. lawless protection of criminals. abhor-tion. violation of Christians. ...all by democrats. The democrat party has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! Why would a Christian partake in that democrat wickedness?! only one reason: idolatry. If any man who is called a brother, be an idolator, don't keep company with him; no not even to eat with him. Are you doing that? Are you cutting fellowship with every democrat who is called a brother? "Oh I hope our nation can just come together..." No, we don't need to come together; the citizens voting democrat, need to repent. And if you are voting democrat, - shame on you. and great terror on you: the Terrible, Dreaded Day of the Lord.

And yet still no ban on abortion which is an actual epidemic in Russia...

I'm curious: how is "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations" defined? It seems like there'd need to be some pretty clear objective criteria for this really to be implemented. Some of the "propaganda" that this law seems to be aiming at is very blatant, but a lot of it is quite subtle, and "we'll know it when we see it" probably wouldn't hold up too well. I imagine the actual text of the law gives some definitions, but not reading Russian, I can't tell.

Russia is the indisputable spiritual leader and defender of Christianity and sanity. The west is imploding.

Good steps in the right direction (the penalties could be stronger). As an American I say: Glory to Russia! Keep up the good work! Those with power and money will hate you, but the regular people will bless you.
