Russia Slams EU’s ‘Aggressive Propaganda of Homosexual Love’

News | 15.01.2014 | 11:46
 

Russia has mounted a diplomatic offensive against “gay propaganda,” accusing the EU in a new report of trying to promote an “alien view of homosexuality and same-sex marriages as a norm of life.”

Criticism of “the aggressive propaganda of homosexual love” is found in the new report on human rights in the EU published Tuesday by the Russian Foreign Ministry.

The report, whose English translation refers to gays as “queers,” slams Europe’s “dissemination of their neo-liberal values as a universal lifestyle for all other members of the international community.”

It also notes “a steady growth of xenophobia, racism, violent nationalism, chauvinism and neo-Nazism” in Europe.

The annual report is the second of its kind by the Russian Foreign Ministry, which has established its own ombudsman’s office.

Russia has floundered in major international rights and freedoms surveys such as the Freedom of the World by the Washington D.C.-based Freedom House, which has ranked it “non-free” in every issue of its annual survey since 2004.

Official Moscow generated extensive backlash in the West when it passed a controversial law in June banning “the promotion of non-traditional sexual relations” among minors.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, who signed the law, denied that gay rights are violated in Russia.

Terrorism on Russia and Western Double Standards

Let’s charitably, for the moment, call it a Western-centric view. But one thing is unmistakable: the Western mainstream news media have a reprehensible double standard when it comes to their coverage of terrorist attacks against Russia compared with incidents in Western countries... The Sydney hostage taker was clearly motivated at a personal level by Islamist extremism... However, that did not stop Western news media and Western governments going into overdrive in their reaction to the siege. There were swift statements of «solidarity» and «prayers» from the US, British and Canadian governments sent to Australian premier Tony Abbott... Now contrast this media frenzy with the downbeat Western reaction to an actual terrorist attack less than two weeks ago in the Russian republic of Chechnya...
