A crackdown against the LGBT+ community in Russia has intensified after a new law was passed by the Russian Parliament.
The bill, which passed in December, places restrictions on almost any mention of LGBT people or culture.

During a speech in the Kremlin to mark the illegal annexation of four Ukrainian regions, the president lashed out at the West and LGBT rights, calling them "pure Satanism".
