MP Greg Mulholland against new Russian law
8:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
Leeds North West Greg Mulholland is backing a Parliamentary motion that condemns a new Russian law that has been widely perceived as being anti-gay.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a controversial bill in June that bans the “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations to minors".
Defenders of the legislation claim it is intended to protect children, but critics have slammed it as being part of a wider crackdown on Russia's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Mr Mulholland (Lib Dem) has signed an Early Day Motion that brands the law an attack of human rights.
