A 49-year-old resident of the village of Varfolomeevka, Primorsky Krai, was charged with “propaganda of LGBT people and gender reassignment” because he went out into the street in a dress and wig. This was reported on the website of the regional department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Seeing a man in a dress on the street, local residents called the Arsenievsky police department. As a result, the police “identified a citizen whose appearance caused complaints from fellow villagers and public censure,” the agency said in a statement.
A resident of Varfolomeevka was detained and taken to the department, where, according to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, he “confessed his guilt and repented of his deed.”
The materials of the administrative case against the villager were submitted to the court (Part 1 of Article 6.21 of the Code of Administrative Offenses), the Ministry of Internal Affairs reported, but the corresponding card was not published on the website of the court. The fine for citizens under the article on “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” ranges from 50 thousand to 100 thousand rubles.
