European Parliament condemns consideration of anti-gay laws

The European Parliament adopted a resolution condemning anti-gay laws in Europe last week, specifically calling on Russia, Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania as well as Ukraine to address existing and draft legislation and "demonstrate, and ensure respect for, the principle of non-discrimination."

The resolution was adopted with 430 in favour and 105 against, saying it was “gravely concerned by developments which restrict freedom of expression and assembly on the basis of misconceptions about homosexuality and transgenderism.”

It added that EU Member States should be “exemplary in the application and protection of fundamental rights in Europe.”
