As long as I’m president, there’ll be no gay marriage in Russia -Putin

President Vladimir Putin of Russia says gay marriage will not be legalised as long as he is president.

Speaking in Kremlin, a city in Moscow, where he met a state commission to discuss the changes to Russia’s constitution, Putin said he would not allow the traditional notion of mother and father to be subverted by what he called “parent number 1” and “parent number 2”.

“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.

Last month, Dmitry Medvedev, the prime minister of Russia and the entire Russian government resigned after President Vladimir Putin proposed a constitutional reform that would allow him to remain in power indefinitely.
