Ahead of Ukraine’s presidential elections, the problems of the country’s LGBT community are being ignored by our leading politicians. None of the leading candidates’ programmes even mention LGBT rights or address the issue directly, without vague euphemisms. Instead of fighting for gay and lesbian rights, Ukraine’s presidential candidates continue to fight for their ratings by promoting populist ideas, rather than the ones that Ukrainian society needs The idea of introducing same-sex marriage is still not accepted in Ukraine, and the majority of the population do not understand what the term “civil partnership” means.
