Putin to gays: Attend games but please leave our children alone



by Joseph Earnest  January 17, 2014


Newscast Media MOSCOW—Russian President Vladimir Putin says homosexuals should feel "free" and "calm" at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games, but asked them to "please leave our children alone."

Meeting with Olympic volunteers in Sochi on January 17, Putin told them Russia had no ban on homosexuals. But he said "the propaganda of homosexuality and pedophilia" is prohibited.

Putin said Russia was freer than many other countries, "including the United States, where in some states there is criminal responsibility for nontraditional sexual orientation."

Russia made headlines when Putin signed a law in June 2013 banning the promotion of homosexuality and pedophilia.

The Sochi Olympics takes place from February 6 to 23.
