QUA is working on the report about Russian anti-LGBTQ propaganda in Ukraine and Eastern Europe

QUA team is working on the report about Russian anti-LGBTQ propaganda in Ukraine and Eastern Europe. We are considering more and more cases of how organizations, religious, or conservative groups supported by the Russian government or related organizations are pushing the anti-LGBTQ agenda in Ukraine and use the so-called “traditional family values” for carrying forward hate speech and calls for violence.

For example, a member of Svoboda party Oleg Karpuk in the City Council of Rivne initiated the resolution to ban gay pride and other LGBTQ events in the region. In 2013 Ukrainian activists found out that the webserver of Svoboda was located in Moscow, Russian Federation.

Religious leader Filaret (Denysenko) in the interview on TV said that coronavirus happened because of gay marriages. Until 1992, Filaret (Denysenko) had been serving in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate).

The report will be presented to the U.S. government and other human rights actors at the end of July 2020 in Washington D.C. and in Brussels in the late fall of 2020.
