    @Djinn, since I see you are online, can we bring all my Russia election threads together into one somehow? Maybe this one, since its the earliest, I'll see if I can rename it better.

    Sobchak said, on November 7th, she would repeal the laws against "gay propaganda", and generally fight the Orthodox Church's influence over Russian politics: ?????? ???????? ?? ?????? ?????? ? ???-?????????? ? ?????? ??????? ??? :: ???????? :: ???

    Doesn't surprise me. As that article mentions, one of the key people in her campaign, is Anton Krasovsky (right)

    Journalist, TV personality, one of very few (actually, pretty much the only that I am aware of) openly gay people who is prominent in Russian society, and big advocate for LGBT rights: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_Krasovsky

    Krasovsky at Pride Parade in New York, four years ago:


    He was pretty much the only one to speak up loudly, on TV, against government-encouraged homophobia and harassment and violence against gay people... Which is why he ain't allowed much on TV anymore...

    And Sobchak herself never particularly liked the Church and how it tries to force its backward ways on Russia.

    Back in 2015, she raised a furor among the believers and the clergy, by appearing in a photo-shoot dressed up as a bearded priest

    There was a big brouhaha. The Church does NOT like being mocked lol

    I don't know... What is she trying to do though? Picking all these hugely controversial topics, Crimea & Ukraine, US relations, LGBT rights, religion... She is gonna bring a lot of heat down on herself...

    I read she already has received threats, and has increased her security. Never goes anywhere without bodyguards

    Definitely wise...

    BTW, this was a day ago, she went to the demonstration in St. Petersburg against the planned closing of the European University there: St. Petersburg’s European University Faces Closure

    She got booed there... lol Many among the liberal opposition people, especially academic intelligentsia, still see her as nothing but a Kremlin stooge. Probably right about that too.
