Editorial: I have written before and put up articles about how the Russian government is orchestrating and allowing attacks on the LGBT population – the latest action has taken place in Kiev. Indeed, Alexander Yakovenko, Russia’s Ambassador to the United Kingdom, has even drawn attention to Britain’s silence on the anti-gay violence in Ukraine!
Whilst the British government in the past has drawn attention to Russia’s 2013 law on “gay propaganda”, which is similar to that of several US states, this time around they have been noticeably reticent.
I would ask you to sign up to one of the various campaigns in the country, sing up for newsletters, make your views known. Abuse, no matter which sector of the community it is aimed, at, is not acceptable.
