1 in 5 Russians want gays and lesbians ‘eliminated,’ survey finds in Politics and World Events Posted May 2, 2020 4 hours ago, runa said: I'm pretty sure you would get the same numbers elsewhere, tbqh, even in USA. Absolutely wrong. Putin has done all he can to demonise gays and this is a direct result of his rule. He has been targeting half of Europe with disinformation about gays and the moral degradation of the west (he is aligned with ultra conservatives from the west too). And it pains me to admit his hybrid war against the west succeeds in Eastern Europe. EU should wake up and expose him for what he really is.
