Want to be gay and live in Russia? You might have to reconsider your plans if so.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said as long as he is president there will not be any gay marriage in Russia. He wants the traditional definition of marriage, between a man and a woman, to be added to their constitution.
Putin added that there will not be any terms like “parent number 1” and “parent number 2," only "papa and mama."
Putin made the comments last Thursday at a meeting to discuss Russian constitutional reform. During a discussion on family values in Russia, conservative lawmaker, Olga Batalina, said that some people would like the word “family” to be defined in the constitution as a “union of a man and a woman.”
“We need to clarify some things. A marriage is a union of a man and woman,” Putin said, “A family is a different thing, but the idea is right and it should be supported. We need to only think about how to formulate it and where.”
Batalina also claimed that the family is under attack from attempts to introduce new terms like “parent number one” and “parent number two.”
“This is not fantasy, this is reality in some countries,” she said.
Putin added, “As for ‘parent #1’ and ‘parent #2’, I have already publicly said it and I will repeat it once more: as long as I am president, we will not have parents #1 and #2, we will have ‘papa’ and ‘mamma.’”
Last year France passed a law requiring that schools replace the words “mother” and “father” in their documents with “parent 1” and “parent 2.” In Italy in 2018, then Deputy Prime Minister, Matteo Salvini, ordered that the words “parent 1” and “parent 2” be deleted from online government forms and replaced with “mother” and “father.”
In 2013 Putin signed a bill to outlaw the promotion of homosexuality, “same-sex marriage,” and Gay Pride parades throughout the Russian Federation. The law imposes stiff fines or prison terms for spreading “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations.” He also supported measures to stop same-sex couples “married” overseas from adopting children in Russia.
