Russian lawmaker: “Homosexuality is not normal, I’m sorry.”

“We have to defend the future of our children,” said Milonov, who has children aged four and one.

He railed against the legalisation of gay marriage in some European countries, describing it as a “symptom of an illness in society, a spiritual degradation”.

“Ninety-five percent of Russians are against gay marriage. Gays do not have any support in Russian society.”
