MOSCOW, October 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Supreme Court has ruled that St. Petersburg’s law tightening responsibility for the propaganda of homosexuality among minors has nothing wrong about it.
The Supreme Court thereby turned down a protest from a St. Petersburg human rights organization. Any public action aimed at the propaganda of same-sex intimacy, bisexualism, and transgenderism among persons under age is punishable with a fine of 5,000 rubles for individuals, 50,000 rubles for officials, and 250,000-500,000 rubles for legal entities. An administrative fine is established for the propaganda of pedophilia – 5,000 rubles for officials, 50,000 rubles for officials and 500,000 rubles to 1,000,000 rubles for legal entities.
St. Petersburg Governor Georgy Poltavchenko signed the bill into law on March 11.
