The authors of the draft law on the protection of rights of children to safe information space require legislating against the promotion of homosexuality by the means of mass communication, the MP, the member of the BYUT –Batkivshchyna Party faction Pavlo Unhurian told a press conference today, ForUm correspondent reports.

"We are not against homosexuals, however, we do not share their values," he stressed. Unhurian said that the co-authors of the bill are the MP of the Communist Party faction Yevhen Tsarkov, the MP of the Party of Regions faction Yulia Kovalevska, the MP of the NU-NS Party faction Kateryna Lukyanova, the member of the Reforms for the Future parliamentary group Taras Chornovil.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Love Against Homosexuality movement Ruslan Kukharchuk stressed that the bill will not limit the media's right to freedom of speech. "When it comes to gay parades, the claims will be advanced against the organizers of such events first, not against the journalists who cover them," he said. According to him, 100 thousand signatures in support of the bill have already been collected by the NGOs. More than 82 thousand were sent to the Parliament. "Today, on the eve of elections, we appeal to political forces, so they clearly declare their position on this issue," Kukharchuk summed.
