Fame monster Lady Gaga has thanked Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev for supporting human rights for gays on Twitter.

“Thank You Prime Minister Medvedev for not standing by your party's anti gay propaganda law & instead supporting my show+fans all over Russia,” she tweeted on December 8, following an interview the Russian Prime Minister gave to five Russian TV channels on Friday.

Medvedev spoke of his stand on the "homosexual propaganda" law, answering a question submitted by an Internet user.

The prime minister said that he personally considered such a bill as unnecessary, as “not all relations between people can be regulated by law.” Medvedev, who heads Russia’s parliamentary majority with the United Russia party, said the party shared this opinion.

The bill on administrative punishment for "homosexual propaganda" among minors was submitted to the State Duma this March. The authors of the bill claim responsibility should be imposed only for the propaganda of the "gay lifestyle" among minors as, they claim, it can be harmful to their spiritual and moral development.

Several Russian regions including St. Petersburg have already adopted anti "gay propaganda" laws, causing outrage among LGBT communities and human rights campaigners the world over.
