Ten cities of the Central Russia refused to hold gay pride parades

The Voronezh administration received a notification about a gay pride planned for October 10 and a meeting against the Federal Law banning promotion of non-traditional sexual relations among the underaged on October 13.

“Considering the fact that they wanted to promote non-traditional sexual relations among the underaged, they received a refusal as there is a ban on spreading information inflicting harm to children’s health and development,” press service of Voronezh mayor office told Interfax.

The Tambov administration also told the agency that they did not agree to hold events aiming at “attracting public attention to non-traditional sexual relations.”

Authorities of certain cities of the Central Federative District – Tula, Kaluga, Ivanovo, Belgorod, Vladimir, Oryol, Ryazan and Kursk refused representatives of the LGTB community in holding gay pride parades.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
