A Kazakh ad agency has been fined for creating a poster for a gay club that sparked outrage last month.
A court in Almaty found Havas Worldwide Kazakhstan guilty of 'advertising goods and services banned in Kazakhstan.'
The court on Wednesday ordered director Daria Khamitzhanova pay a $700 fine and her company a $1,000 fine.
The case was filed by Almaty youth authorities.
The ad, created for the Studio 69 club in the largest city Almaty, shows Kazakh composer Kurmangazy Sagyrbayuly kissing Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.
