The law also provides for the implementation of a mechanism that limits children’s access to hearing and viewing information related to homosexuals, as the possibility of monitoring will be provided to one of the institutions authorized by the government.
Fines for violators of real and legal persons, according to the law, will range from 50,000 Russian rubles (about 827 dollars) to 10 million Russian rubles (about 165,290 dollars).
