Russian President, Vladimir Putin has revealed in an address that as long as he’s still president, marriages will be between a man and a woman as the Commander-In-Chief further stressing that marriages should be solely a heterosexual union, thereby ruling out Russia legalizing gay marriage.
“A marriage is a union of a man and woman,” he said at a meeting with a Kremlin-appointed committee discussing new amendments to the Russian constitution.
“This is the right idea and it should be supported. We need to only think about how to formulate it and where,’ he said after conservative lawmaker Olga Batalina said Russia’s constitution should uphold ‘traditional family values.”
This means that Russia will not introduce politically correct terminology such as “parent number 1” and “parent number 2” any time soon.
