Russian journalist accused of anti-gay 'propaganda' defeats charges
Thank you if you texted to sign the petition supporting Elena Klimova.
In January this year, Elena Klimova was charged under Russia’s new anti-'gay propaganda' law for running Children 404, a website offering support to LGBTI teenagers.
Last week, Elena's case was heard in court. The court ruled in her favour. Elena has been told that she can continue Children 404, her project that offers a lifeline to Russian teens.
15,000 thank yous!
More than 15,000 Amnesty supporters in the UK emailed or sent a text to the Russian authorities via our website or SMS action network, calling on them to drop the charges against Elena. Thank you. We'll continue to monitor the situation, and let you know if we need your support again. In the meantime, you can help to continue to defend LGBTI rights around the world from the UK to Russia to Uganda by joining our LGBTI Network.
