"The law of 1993 does not prosecute sexual minorities, they are free.

We do not allow gay parades. When we talk about inclinations of sexual minorities, it's ok -- grasp your interests as you like.

Entertain yourself, no problem, but not on the streets, squares, marches and demonstrations.

We never introduced any limitations on them, except public actions.

--Yury Luzhkov, mayor of Moscow who banned Pride
