Russia's Putin wants traditional marriage and God in constitution

Russia's Putin wants traditional marriage and God in constitution
Russia's Putin wants traditional marriage and God in constitution

Russian President Vladimir Putin wants marriage to be defined as the union of a man and woman in a revised constitution, ruling out gay marriage.
It is among several constitutional amendments proposed by Mr Putin, which are set to be put to a public vote.
Critics see the proposals as a move by Mr Putin to keep a hold on power after his presidential term ends in 2024.
The package includes a proclamation of Russians' faith in God and a ban on giving away any Russian territory.

While most Russians identify as Orthodox Christians, the state is officially secular. The current constitution dates from 1993, when then President Boris Yeltsin was embracing Western democracy and capitalism.
Mr Putin's drive against Western liberalism has included a controversial ban on disseminating "gay propaganda" among young Russians. The ban - condemned by many liberals and the European Court of Human Rights - has been used to harass gay rights activists.

No surprise there.

Putin is basically Stalin under another name.
Sanity adjacent.

Nightmarish, not just dangerous. Russia in his reign give coverage -both political and military- to the worst regimes in the Middle East; take Syria's "Assad" and Libya's "Haftar" as examples.

I'd say he was more Beria than Stalin but that makes him more dangerous.
