Russia’s justice ministry has filed a motion with the country’s Supreme Court to ban the activities of what it calls the “international LGBT public movement” as extremist. . .
It said the movement had shown signs of “extremist activity”, including inciting “social and religious strife”.
The ban could leave any LGBT activist vulnerable to criminal prosecution. . .
The ban would make it impossible for LGBT organizations to operate and put activists and employees at risk of criminal prosecution, the Moscow Times quoted one of the few LGBT activists still inside Russia as saying. . .
