HOMOSEXUALITY IS A WESTERN IMPORT. THERE ARE NO GAYS IN UKRAINE.

Ukraine’s legislature is about to vote a brand new bill into law that will make it illegal to be gay or lesbian in public. President Viktor Yanukovych has the power to stop the law, but has chosen to stay silent on the growing anti-gay sentiment.   

The President says a new alliance with the European Union is his #1 Priority. World leaders have been raising this issue at high level meetings; it’s time to force the President to speak out against these laws. 

SIGN THE PETITION.

Sergey Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorsky (1863-1944) was a Russian photographer and chemist. He was a pioneer in colour photography, and in 1909-1915 he travelled around The Russian Empire to document the history, culture and peoples of this vast czardom.

Randomly stumbled across this picture. I pass this terminal on the bus to uni almost every day! Looks just the same 30 years later.
