American anti-gay activist Scott Lively, who faces charges of hate crimes for his work on Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” bill, has told Vladimir Putin that Russia’s “gay propaganda” bill does not go far enough in addressing “the problem” of LGBTs.

In an open letter sent August 30, Lively praised the Russian president for setting “an example of moral leadership that has shamed the governments of Western Europe and North America” with his campaign against LGBT people, but said “the battle to protect your society from homosexualization has only just begun.”
