Vladimir Putin’s remark on “obsolete” liberal values, pointing that the major part of Western people left them behind, disappointed Elton John.
After the gay moments in “Rocketman” being censored in Russia, the singer noted to the Russian President’ hypocrisy and wished LGBT people respect and understanding from the government.
“I have a lot of respect for him, he is a genius musician, we all enjoy his music, but I think he is mistaken,” Putin commented Elton John’s words at the G20 summit.
Mr. President said that Russia is “relaxed and unprejudiced” to LGBT people and added that only being adult you can take into account of gender identity. Russia bans “propaganda of homosexuality among minors”.
While pointing liberal values in general, Putin told exclusively about the situations that harmed traditional lifestyles.
