Institutional homophobic repression in the Fascist Russia of Putin

Russian LGTB activists and solidary people protested yesterday against the growing homophobia by the regime, which has approved local laws that forbid what they call "homosexual propaganda", i.e. the defense of the rights of homosexual people to live freely as anybody else. 

Christian-Fascist groups attacked them and then police charged against everybody indiscriminately arresting as many as 40 people. 

Russia and Moldova share the dubious honor of being the most homophobic states in Europe, according to the LGTB International Association. According to them Russia is closer to Iran than to the West in this aspect.
