Russian President Vladimir Putin is trying to be more GAY friendly, OK? Since, it's like, a global thing to be inclusive and the Winter Olympics are beginning soon in his country, Putin announced to the GAYS that they will be fine in Russia. Just as long as they leave the children alone, because as we all know the GAYS like to snack on kids before engaging in winter sports.
"We do not have a ban on non-traditional sexual relationships," said Putin in comments reported by Russian agencies. "We have a ban on the propaganda of homosexuality and paedophilia. I want to underline this. Propaganda among children. These are absolutely different things – a ban on something or a ban on the propaganda of that thing."
Putin also added that Russia was more liberal than some other countries, claiming that in certain US states homosexuality was still punishable by law.
"We are not forbidding anything and nobody is being grabbed off the street, and there is no punishment for such kinds of relations," said Putin. "You can feel relaxed and calm [in Russia], but leave children alone please," said Putin.
Putin's level of ignorance is pretty amazing. Like I've said before, can't wait to see how this plays out during the games.
