‘Completely Crazy’: Activists Slam Antigay Ad As Russia’s Constitutional Vote Looms

 |

A Russian media group linked to a close associate of President Vladimir Putin has produced an antigay political ad ahead of a vote on constitutional amendments that would open the door for the former KGB colonel to remain in power until 2036. The video, which was produced by Patriot Media Group and began airing this week on social media, shows a young boy’s disappointment upon learning that his new adopted mother is actually a makeup-wearing gay man, who immediately presents the child with a dress. Upon observing the interaction between the boy and the man, an elderly woman working at the orphanage spits on the ground in disgust. “Is this the Russia you will choose? Decide the future of the country. Vote for the amendments to the constitution,” a voiceover says at the end of the ad as the gay couple hugs.
