Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev does not plan to pass an anti-gay propaganda on a federal level. He said, “Not every moral issue behaviour or habit or communication issue between people should be regulated.” He also responded to a question on banning homosexuality saying, “This is why not all relationships between people are subject to a legal interpretation.”
