Russian President Vladimir Putin has ruled out the legalization of gay marriage in Russia.
The President when asked for an inclusive clause defining marriage in the Russian constitution, disclosed he would not allow the traditional notion of ‘dad’ and ‘mum’ be replaced with ‘Parent number 1’ and ‘Parent number 2’
He also vowed that as long as he was President of Russia, gay marriage will never be legalized in the country.
“As far as ‘parent number 1’ and ‘parent number 2’ goes, I’ve already spoken publicly about this and I’ll repeat it again: as long as I’m president this will not happen. There will be dad and mum,” Putin said.
