The new legislation mandates fines for anyone promoting non-traditional relations, pedophilia, and gender reassignment
Russian ‘LGBTQ propaganda’ law signed by Putin explained

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a complete ban on ‘LGBTQ propaganda’, which criminalizes the distribution of material promoting non-traditional sexual relations, pedophilia, and transgenderism. The law also allows foreign offenders to be expelled from Russia.

Putin signed the bill on Monday, after it was approved by the upper and lower chambers of the Russian parliament late last month.
