Russian ally Belarus is making preparations for a restrictive anti-LGBTQ+ law like Russia’s, with an extra provision targeting childless couples. Alexis Boddy of City Law School at the University of London writes in The JuristBelarus drafts law punishing the promotion of LGBT+ relationships. The Prosecutor General of Belarus, Andrei Shved, announced [on Feb. 19] that the government has been preparing a bill that would punish the promotion of what they deem to be non-traditional relationships in a move targeted at LGBTQ+ unions. He stated that it was important to not even allow the discussion of the topic and that opponents were attempting to destroy traditional family values and, by extension, Belarus as a nation.
