The appeal of Russian government agencies to the Russian Book Union with the proposal to exclude the distribution of books promoting sexual perversions is based on the "moral consensus of Russian society", the Russian Orthodox Church supports this initiative. This was reported by Vakhtang Kipshidze, Deputy Head of the Synodal Department for Relations with Society and the Media of the Moscow Patriarchate.

Request has been made to the Russian Book Union of excluding from sale books containing propaganda of homosexual relations "based upon self-regulation of the book industry." Propaganda of perversions to minors is now banned in Russia, but materials, including books, remain available.

"I urge the Russian Book Union to consider this request as coming not only from a federal executive body, but also based on the moral consensus of Russian society on the inadmissibility of propaganda of phenomena that undermine the idea of the family as the union of a man and a woman. Which, incidentally, is enshrined in the Constitution of Russia," - wrote Mr. Kipshidze.

Earlier, a bill was submitted to the State Legislative Assembly to ban propaganda of  sexual perversions throughout the nation, not just to the minors, as it is now.
