MOSCOW, January 12 (Itar-Tass) — A Just Russia will decide whether the party should join the Socialist International, which demands the legalization of light drugs and the support for sexual minorities.
A Just Russia Party faced the choice. The party will have to decide, whether they should continue its efforts to join the Socialist International or give up its efforts to join this international organization. An Izvestia source acquainted with the situation in A Just Russia said the party had just found in the program documents of the Socialist International the demand to legalize light drugs, respect the rights of sexual minorities and legalize same-sex marriages.
Currently A Just Russia has the status of a consultative member of the organization and intends to become a full-fledged member of the Socialist International in the future. However, the demand to support gays, lesbians and legalize their marriages runs counter to the position that the party intends to take on the Russian political scene.
