'There will be dad and mum': Putin rules out Russia legalising gay marriage

Today <<== This is a Singapore based news site.

MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday Russia would not legalise gay marriage as long as he was in the Kremlin.

...

During his two decades in power, Putin has closely aligned himself with the Orthodox Church and sought to distance Russia from liberal Western values, including attitudes towards homosexuality and gender fluidity.

He made the comments as he met a state commission to discuss changes to Russia's constitution.

...


Context (I have been following this):

The venue is what we would call a constitutional convention. The main purpose is to consolidate Putin's power, but he is leaving the door open to liberalizing this and that as a sweetener.

But as he makes clear, not for gays.

It really is the Orthodox church behind this.
