Official statement on discriminatory legislature in Russia
The European AIDS Clinical Society (EACS) notes with much concern the discriminatory legislative and police measures that reflect unjustified and harmful discrimination against gay, lesbian and transgendered persons in Russia. Article 6.21 of the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Offenses allows the government to fine individuals accused of the "propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations amongst minors".
