Gays welcome at Olympics if theyRussian president Vladimir Putin says gay people should feel welcome at the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, but they must “leave the children in peace”.
Mr Putin told volunteers today that gay people visiting Sochi “can feel calm and at ease,” and vowed that there would be no discrimination at the games.
But he emphasised that, according to a law banning homosexual “propaganda” among minors, gay people cannot express their views on gay rights issues to anyone under age.
Propaganda? Heh, I guess he's an expert on the subject of what's propaganda.
