The authorities in Moscow are considering a misdemeanour charge against a self-described “gay basher” and “defender of traditional values” for discrediting the Russian army, news outlet Ostorozhno Novosti reported on Tuesday. Timur Bulatov, a St. Petersburg resident who has become notorious for his denunciations and harassment of queer people in recent years, told independent media outlet Mediazona that he was unaware of the charges, and said that he was confident the issue would be resolved and ultimately thrown out. No details were given about the grounds for the charge, though Bulatov suggested in a comment to Ostorozhno Novosti that it may be related to his denunciation of fringe spiritual leader and would-be politician Svetlana Lada-Rus after her supporters reportedly complained about him to the authorities.
