Russian TV Offers Gay People One-way Tickets To Leave The Country
A Russian religious television channel is offering to pay for one-way plane tickets for gay people serious about emigrating from the country.
In a video on its social media channels this week, Tsargrad TV called on gay people to compete for a one-way plane ticket overseas.
“Just recently, California – the most liberal state in the USA by the way – proposed to facilitate the granting of green cards to Russian perverts,” said TV host Andrei Afanasyev.
The channel regularly uses offensive terms to refer to LGBT people.
“The staff of Tsargrad TV support this initiative. Moreover, we are ready to pay for a one-way ticket to anyone who plans to emigrate in complete earnest, and can provide a medical certificate proving that they are sodomites or have other forms of perversion,” he added.
“We really want you to move there, where you can openly submit to your sins.”
The channel insisted it was not trolling users and that it “wants to do good”.
But a Russian sexologist speaking to the lifestyle website Afisha Daily said it was unlikely anyone would be able to obtain the required medical certificate, as sexual orientation was not considered a disease.
