Well, goodbye communism. Funny thing is that homosexual people are allowed to donate blood, which is not possible in North America and many European countries (sometimes subject to deferrals). The ban was repealed as recently as 2008, by the way, which make these events even more confusing to me.

Anyways, these bans started appearing in 2006 and since spread to 10 regions before this nation-wide ban was considered. Maybe United Russia is turning on homosexuality as a way to deal with popular discontent over corruption, slowing economic growth and authoritarianism? I haven't found a single source analyzing just why they would pass this law at this time.
