Russia’s lower house of parliament passed a law expanding its ban on so-called ‘LGBT propaganda’ to all adults. Under the new legislation, which had its third and final reading in the Duma on 24 November, any event or act viewed as an attempt to “promote” homosexuality could result in a fine of up to 400,000 roubles (£5,472) for individuals and 4,000,000 roubles (£68,400) for legal entities.

Foreigners in the country could be subjected to 15 days of arrest and possible expulsion from Russia. The discriminatory bill will now be forwarded to the Federation Council (the upper house of Parliament) before President Vladimir Putin signs it into law.

Russians will be restricted from “praising” homosexuality or publicly suggesting that homosexuals are “normal” under the legislation.
