Putin Slams 'Criminal' Gender Lie

Vladimir Putin has spoken out to say that it is 'monstrous' that Western children are taught that they can change their gender.

The Russian President, speaking in Sochi, said it is 'close to a crime against humanity' for young boys and girls to be told that they can becoming transgender

The Kremlin leader said: 'It is terrible when children in the West are taught the idea that a boy can become a girl.'  He warned that the insane policy risks ruining the lives of a generation of children.

Putin has regularly faced hysterical criticism for his crackdown on LGBT dogma in Russia, where same-sex marriage and 'gay propaganda' is banned.

Same-sex marriages in Russia were officially prohibited when changes made to the Russian constitution in July 2020 came into effect earlier this year.

Russia's constitution now says that marriage can only exist between a man and a woman, and also prevents trans people from adopting children.
