The US Embassy in Moscow is flying the rainbow pride flag alongside the country's famous Stars and Stripes as a show of support for the sodomite community.

The move comes as Russians begin to head to the polls to vote on proposed constitutional amendments, including the definition of marriage as a union between a man and woman.

On its Instagram page, the United States Embassy said, "LGBTI rights are human rights. Human rights are universal." The American Embassy went on to say, "Pride Month is designed to emphasize that everyone deserves to live a life free of hate, prejudice, and persecution."

In the USA, Sodomite Pride Month occurs in June, on the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots, when members of New York's homosexual community fought back against local police who regularly raided the city's sodomite bars. The flag was used for the first time during a pride parade in San-Francisco on June 25, 1978.

Beginning on Thursday, Russians will vote on a package of constitutional amendments, including one which would enshrine marriage as being between a man and a woman. In March, the country's Constitutional Court approved the proposal.

In 2013, Russia passed a law making it an offense to distribute materials promoting homosexual propaganda among minors.

Speaking to reporters, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov explained that they “can’t see the American embassy from the Kremlin,” but said that "any manifestations of propaganda of non-traditional sexual minorities, and so on, is not allowed by law in our country."
