Russian President Vladimir Putin has officially signed into his country’s law a ban on same-sex marriage. Additional rules also reset the term limits of his presidency, meaning he can now serve two more terms of six years in office.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that the disturbing move for Russia’s LGBTQ+ community is part of a larger group of constitutional reforms which were voted in by the public on July 1, 2020.
