Russia’s Constitutional Court [on Sept. 25] ruled that the country’s controversial anti-‘gay propaganda’ law is not against the Russian constitution after an appeal made by three LGBT activists.
Nikolai Alexeyev, Dimitri Isakov and Yaroslav Yevutshenko brought the case to the court, claiming that the law, which bans the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ and the discussion of homosexuality with minors, was in breach of the Russian constitution.
