Russian lawmaker Vitaly Milonov has said that the country will arrest gay athletes and tourists at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games in 2014. The politician, a co-sponsor of the "non-traditional relationships" bill in the country, said their government should not decide when to enforce the law.
On June 30, 2013, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed into a law a provision that bans gay propaganda in the country. It allows the government to arrest or detain gay or even pro-gay tourists for two weeks before they are deported. Those who break the law may also be fined up to $30,000.
With the Winter Olympics happening in February 2014, the International Olympic Committee has assured the public by saying that foreign athletes and visitors to Sochi for the event would not be targeted by the anti-gay law.
However, Mr Milonov said that the government cannot choose a time when to enforce the law.

Well how about that!
Another reason Caliph Baraq won’t be visiting Russia anytime soon, LOL.
Vitaly Milonov, the gay impaler, so to speak.
They backed down on Olympics people but not their own. Front page news.
I might just find an excuse to Sochi for the Olympics. Maybe I could find a girl in Kiev who would be interested.
Gays will not be arrested if they don’t flaunt it.
Well, it’s a bit early to pop popcorn. I might just buy popcorn futures though.
As I said last night, to the shock of Captain Obvious, to quote m’self: “There goes our hockey team!”
Sure but what do you expect the men's figure skaters to do
Let the showdown commence.
About time !!
But perhaps if gays boycott the games, there will be more tickets available? Now I understand why Lindsey Graham wants the US to boycott the Winter Olympics in Sochi.
I’m beginning to develop quite a fondness for Mother Russia.
I know the Olympics is a big athlete sex fest, but can’t athletes keep it in their pants for a couple of weeks for a chance at Olympic gold?
putin for speaker
But perhaps if gays boycott the games, there will be more tickets available?
Certainly for the men’s figure skating events...
