As in the rest of the world, in the past homosexual behavior in Russia was frequent and accepted, in fact, the first law that prohibited something related was that of Peter the Great, in 1716, to prohibit exclusively anal intercourse in the army. At present Russia leads the group of pedophile countries, in which homosexual men are intentionally associated with pedophilia – nothing further from reality – and the protection of children is used to commit the greatest atrocities. Murders, assaults, and harassment are common in Russia, and the battle against diversity by its political class culminated in 2013 with the ban on homosexual propaganda, which has curtailed activism and increased violence against the LGBT community.
