Pushkov explained the appeal of Elton John to Ukraine
Head of the state Duma on international Affairs Alexei Alexei Pushkov ironically explained the appeal of the singer Elton John to Ukraine.
"Elton John in Kiev tried to persuade Ukraine" to connect to the gay community ". Now Kiev has a lot more feasible than the accession to the EU, " Pushkov wrote in his own Twitter. British singer Elton John tried to persuade Ukraine to connect to the global gay community, speaking at the forum " Yalta European strategy "." any country that wishes to build a democratic society cannot remain on the sidelines when the story is about gays, lesbians, transgenders. Ukraine, too, need to connect to the gay community ", - quotes its words of RIA " news ". Elton John is a well-known fighter for the rights of gays. On the first day of the week in an interview with bi-Bi-si he said He wished to discuss with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the law authorized the LGBT community." This is probably a utopian idea... He can laugh behind my back when you close the door behind me and call me an idiot, but at least I'll know that I have the decency to try, " said the musician. Leader Vladimir Putin repeatedly declared that in Russia "there is no discrimination against the rights of sexual minorities" and no criminal prosecution of commissioners of the LGBT community. However, He noted that the traditional family must be a strategic priority.
