International organization Human Rights Watch (HRW) has addressed the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine with a request to remove from consideration the draft bill on prohibition of homosexuality promotion in mass media. According to the organization, the document is discriminating towards sexual minorities. Nevertheless, authors of the draft bill do not intend to listen to HRW recommendations.

Human Rights Watch declares the adopted draft bill will result in illegal censorship of information about homosexuality. "Those who support this draft bill doom Ukrainians to ignorance rather than defend the population from any harm," the letter says. "If the parliament approves the document Ukraine will isolate itself from other countries, members of the council of Ukraine," HRW representative Boris Dietrich added.

At the same time, one of the authors of the draft bill Evgeny Tsarkov (Communist party) says HRW is 'not the organization, whose opinion must be always taken into account'. "Ukraine must be protected from sodomy, brought here by Europe, and homosexuals must be offered a treatment. When I walk along the street with my son and see newspapers with kissing men, it violates my constitutional rights. Zoophiles and pedophiles also have desire or animals and children, but we don't defend them, right," Tsarkov said. According to him, none of declarations of European organizations will prevent the adoption of the draft bill.
