An LGBT activist in Russia has been fined 50,000 roubles for sharing Buzzfeed and The Guardian articles in Russian court. A judge in Samara ruled that the articles shared by Evdokiya Romanova were against the country’s homophobic “anti-propaganda laws”. As the links were “circulated among minors”, it is believed that a judge returned the case to the police for further investigation this month. “There’s a good chance that the police will stop their investigation and close the case,” Romanova said at the time.
