Russia: communications authorities, do not sell ‘LGBT books’

(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 22 – Roskomnadzor, the communications authority in Russia, has asked the Russian Book Union to stop the distribution of texts that, according to the censorship body, would promote “sexual relations non-traditional “: the independent online newspaper Meduza reports, citing Tass in turn.

In Russia, the rights of sexual minorities are too often trampled on and demonstrations to defend these rights are hindered by a notorious law that officially punishes the promotion of “non-traditional relationships” among minors. This much-criticized law was rejected by the European Court of Human Rights because it is discriminatory and undermines the right to freedom of expression.
