MOSCOW, December 13 (RIA Novosti) – A Russian toy store chain is under investigation for carrying a game that promotes homosexual behavior, prosecutors said Friday.
The game, Fanty, violates a Russian law criminalizing the promotion of “non-traditional sexual relations” by instructing players to act out the seduction of members of the same sex like in an erotic film, a parents committee in the southern Russian city of Stavropol told RIA Novosti.
The Katyusha toy store chain, at which the game was labeled for children 12 and older, will be informed of the results of the investigation after 30 days, according to the local prosecutor’s office.
A resident of Stavropol filed a complaint after purchasing the game at a Katyusha toy store.
The law, whose proponents say is aimed at protecting children from harmful influences, has been repeatedly criticized in Russia and abroad as discriminatory.
Human rights activists have urged a boycott of the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi over the legislation.
