Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday mocked a rainbow LGBT pride flag hung from the US embassy in Moscow

Putin said it reflected on the orientation of the diplomats. During a televised video conference, a lawmaker told Putin that the US embassy had hung a rainbow flag on its facade for the first time to celebrate Pride month in June

Putin asked him who works in this building? To which he was told Americans. Putin replied, “Let them celebrate. They have shown a certain something about the people who work there”

“It is no big deal though. We have spoken about this many times, and our position is clear. Yes, we passed a law banning the propaganda of homosexuality among minors. So what? Let people grow up, become adults and then decide their own destinies”

Putin has distanced himself from western values and aligned himself with the Russian Orthodox Church.
