Russian’s justice ministry banned an image depicting President Vladimir Putin as a gay clown


The ban applies specifically to a picture posted on Vkontakte, a Russian social network, that is intended to represent “the supposed nonstandard sexual orientation of the president of the Russian Federation” and carries the caption: “Putin voters… they say there are lots of them, but there aren’t any among the people I know.” The “gay propaganda” law was an attempt to protect children and bans the promotion of homosexuality to minors. The protective measure to defend the Russian’s President public image was decided, by coincidence, on time when continues to be way ahead of other politicians in the credibility ranking. Based on a survey in at least 80 Russian regions, during the week of March 27-April 2, the Russian president enjoyed a 82.7% approval rating, while the prime minister’s performance was assessed positively by 54.8% of the respondents, and the government’s performance was seen positively by 61.5%.
