Russia is much less concerned with world opinion than during the Soviet years. It's spun as a stalwart and holy resistance to Western decadence and corrupting influences, plowed into the well-prepared soil of decades of such propaganda by the Soviets. It plays perfectly into Russia's cultural xenophobia, and feeds the current fascist trend.

By liberals telling them how great is is to be gay and that being gay is normal. In other words, gay propaganda.
