Second reading of homophobic bill due in St Petersburg’s parliament today

European diplomats met with the initiator of the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ bill due to have its second reading in parliament in St Petersburg today.

United Russia deputy Vitaly Milonov brought the bill to the city’s parliament last November, saying: ‘We do not infringe on civil rights and freedoms. We are only talking about propaganda as this information about sexual deviations affects our children.’
