MOSCOW, January 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Yelena Mizulina, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for Family, Women and Children Affairs, said on Monday it would be excessive to ban any sex propaganda among children under age.
Some time ago, a group of deputies from the United Russia faction, the Communist Party and the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) had submitted a bill banning the propaganda of all sexual relationships among under aged children and the imposition of the idea of priority of sexual relations on children’s minds. The proposed amendments suggest excluding the term “non-traditional” from Article 6.21 titled “Propaganda of Non-Traditional Sexual Relationships” which was introduced to the Russian Code of Administrative Offences last year.
Mizulina, who represents a Just Russia party at the State Duma lower house of parliament, believes that banning the propaganda of all types of sex among not urgent.
“This measure is even excessive,” Mizulina said on her official website.
The Federal Law on the protection of children from information that could cause damage to their health and development has been regulating the propaganda of traditional sexual relationships among teenagers for a long time.
“That is why we do not see the need to change the existing laws,” Mizulina said.
