Russian ice cream in 'gay propaganda' row - BBC News
The ice cream maker was accused of promoting homosexuality after using a rainbow on its packaging.
The head of Russia's official Union of Women said the image amounted to "propaganda" for gay and lesbian relations in a video conference with President Vladimir Putin.
Homosexuality was decriminalised in Russia in 1993, but those deemed to be promoting "homosexual behaviour among minors" face fines of up to 500,000 roubles ($7,000).
"They're quietly promoting these nice rainbow colours, using nice words, they're advertising an ice cream called Rainbow," Yekaterina Lakhova, who is also a former MP, told the Russian president.
This, Ms Lakhova added, could potentially make Russian children more accepting of the rainbow flag used by the LGBTQ community.
