Russian teachers were ordered to identify and monitor LGBTQ+ students and report them to the federation’s Interior Ministry, the Russian LGBT Network reported last Thursday. The Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) is responsible for law enforcement and policing. According to the network, form masters of 5-to-11-grade classes were ordered by the administration of St. Petersburg’s Nevsky District to collect information on students “using gay symbology” on social media. The teachers were then ordered to create individual dossiers with the students’ names, photos, addresses and behavioral profiles, specifying their violations of Russia’s “nontraditional relations propaganda” law. The information was then given to the MVD. According to the “Federal Law for the Purpose of Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values,” the punishment for violating Article 6.21 of the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Offenses ranges between a RUB 5,000 ($66.6) fine and 90 days of administrative detention.
