Lady Gaga Thanks Russian Prime Minister

American pop star Lady Gaga expressed her appreciation to Russian Prime Minister for his lack of support for legislation barring “homosexual propaganda” in Russia.

      “Thank You Prime Minister Medvedev for not standing by your party’s anti gay propaganda law & instead supporting my show+fans all over Russia,” Lady Gaga wrote in her official Twitter account on Saturday.

      The message came shortly after Dmitry Medvedev told journalists during a live televised interview that he sees no need for legislative regulation of homosexuality in Russia. That comment arrive two weeks before the State Duma, Russia’s lower house of parliament, will consider a federal draft bill banning “homosexual propaganda.”

      “Not all moral issues, not all behavioral patterns, not all issues of communication between people should be regulated by law,” Medvedev said.

      Several Russian regions, including St. Petersburg, have already passed similar laws, which are expected to protect children from what lawmakers claim is the danger of gay “propaganda.”
