MOSCOW, August 10 (RIA Novosti) – A former government official-turned-popular blogger reported Friday being questioned over a complaint by the lawmaker behind Russia’s notorious anti-gay legislation.

“Two lieutenant colonels of the…[Investigative Committee’s] main investigation department spent three hours establishing the details of [State Duma deputy Yelena] Mizulina’s gay and oral phobias and my position on them,” Alfred Kokh wrote on his Facebook.

Another round of questioning is set for August 21, added Kokh, who worked in the government in 1993-1997, rising to become a deputy Prime Minister.

Kokh said on Facebook last week that Mizulina reported him for slander over his heated and sometimes politically incorrect public criticism of her conservative policies.

The lawmaker denied targeting Kokh, but confirmed complaining to the Investigative Committee about unspecified critics who attacked her and her colleague in allegedly slanderous online statements and publications.

Two journalists, a gay rights champion and It Girl-turned-opposition activist Ksenia Sobchak were also called for questioning earlier over the ongoing case.

Mizulina, 58, a member of the ruling United Russia, lobbied for a law passed in June that imposed high fines for “gay propaganda among minors.” Prominent news website Rosbalt.ru claimed at the time she also called to ban “propaganda of oral sex,” but Mizulina called it slander and threatened to sue.

    There are lots of them on western pay rolls.

    The now exposed "Syrian gay girl" hoax from the early day´s of the USraeli onslaught, turned out to be an American man in Scotland.

    Not to mention the infamous but very real and repulsive character Navalny in Russia among other Russian fifth columns sometimes seen visiting US ambassador Michael McFaul, apparently for marching orders...
