MOSCOW, December 7 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes the problem of sexual minorities is not the one to be regulated by a law.
“Not all moral issues, not all behavior patterns, not all aspects of communication between people are to be fixed in laws, because it is not possible to legally regulate relations between people totally,” Medvedev said in a live televised interview on Friday.
When asked by a journalist from the Dozhd (Rain) television channel about the rights of sexual minorities in Russia, the prime minister said, “It must be a crucial problem for your channel.” At the same time, he admitted that the subject “might probably concern a great number of people in this country.”
The prime minister noted that the very fact that a question like this had been asked of him proved that this televised interview was a really improvised one. “It demonstrates that any question can be asked and that we are really on air,” he said.
