Russia's parliament is to consider a nationwide ban on so-called "gay propaganda." Nine regions including St Petersburg have already passed legislation prohibiting the promotion of so-called "gay propaganda" among minors. The Duma, Russia's parliament, will consider the nationwide ban on 19 December. "This is an illegal policy of repression," said Igor Kochetkov, head of the LGBT Network, a Russian LGBT advocacy group.
