Anti-LGBT+ Russian MP Vitaly Milonov has been reprimanded by the country’s Human Rights Council after he called for gays to be “sterilised” and kept in shelters like cats. Milonov, a notoriously homophobic member of the State Duma and the original proponent of Russia’s so-called “gay propaganda law“, made the comments while responding on TikTok to a question from a journalist, according to RT. In the clip, which has now been removed, Milonov suggested creating shelters to confine gay people, but said it would be “humane” to house and feed them. He said: “We have to be humane. How do we fight stray cats? We sterilize them. And gays should be sterilised, too.” Milonov added that gay people were “lowest stage of development of the animal world”, and “of course” could not be compared to “cute cats”. In response, Valery Fadeev, head of Russia’s Human Rights Council, gave Milonov a warning.
