Russia Designates LGBT Movement an Extremist, Terrorist Organisation

Boom RadioNG | March 22, 2024

Russia has today announced that the country’s “LGBT movement” has been added to a list of extremist and terrorist organisations.

This was in line with Russia’s Supreme Court’s ruling last November that ruled LGBT activists should be designated as extremists.

They are now added to a list maintained by a govt agency called Rosfinmonitoring that has powers to freeze the bank accounts of the more than 14,000 people and entities designated as extremists and terrorists. They range from Al Qaeda to U.S. tech giant Meta and associates of late Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

According to local media, the new listing refers to the “international LGBT social movement and its structural units.

Representatives of gay and transgender people said they feared would lead to arrests and prosecutions.

Among other steps, the Russian government has passed laws outlawing the promotion of “non-traditional” sexual relations and banned legal or medical changes of gender.
