The authorities in Sevastopol and Simferopol have refused to permit four actions of sexual minorities on the basis of the law banning the propaganda of homosexuality among minors, leading figure in the Russian gay community Nikolai Alexeyev has said.
"Like in the case of Sevastopol the bans on gay processions in Simferopol will be protested in court and if need be, brought to international bodies - the UN Committee on Human Rights and the European Court," Alexeyev said to Interfax.
