All participants in St Petersburg gay pride arrested for marching | Gay Star News

 たまたま囲いの外にいたため逮捕を免れたLGTB活動家のNikolai Alekseevさんによれば、29日のイベントで約60人が拘束されたという。一部は解放されたものの一部はやってもいないこと(反プーチンスローガンのバナーを掲げるなど)を供述する書類にサインを強要され、拒むとさらに拘束期間が伸びることを告げられているようである。



The Petersburg law bans the 'propaganda' among minors of homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality, and makes the offense – which has never clearly been defined by lawmakers – punishable by a fine of 5,000 rubles (US$157) for individuals, 50,000 rubles (US$1,570) for officials and 250,000-500,000 rubles (US$7,854-US$15,710) for companies.

According to the Federal law, any media or gay rights organization could be fined up to one million rubles ($30.8k, €23.2k) and shut down for 90 days, individuals could be fined up to 100,000 rubles ($3k, €2.3k) and foreigners could be fined the same amount, held in jail for 15 days and deported. 

Sources in St Petersburg indicate that the individuals arrested today may be detained for up to two days.
