on social media

The draft law, which passed the first of two readings, does not clearly define what it means by the “promotion of homosexuality” but says it is a threat to national security.

“Certain media outlets, going against the interests of society and the state, are promoting a tolerant attitude towards things like sexual relations between people of the same sex,” the law’s authors said in an accompanying note.

“The spread of homosexuality constitutes a threat to national security as it leads to an HIV/AIDS epidemic and also destroys the institute of family and can trigger a demographic crisis.”
