Milonov visits concert of St. Petersburg band Gopota and listens to song about himself
In the song called Milonov, the authors make fun of the parliamentarian’s struggle with the LGBT community.
State Duma deputy Vitaly Milonov, known for his attacks on homosexuals and initiatives to ban gay propaganda, attended a concert of Gopota in St. Petersburg, where he listened to a song that mocks him. This is reported by REN TV.
A short video of the concert made by one of the witnesses has appeared online. The video shows a man resembling Milonov standing by the stage in one of St. Petersburg clubs, where musicians are performing the 2012 song entitled Milonov. The politician is holding sheets of paper in his hands. In the song called Milonov, the authors make fun of the parliamentarian’s struggle with the LGBT community. In particular, there are the following lines: “Morality has a noble protector on its guard. Vitaly is the best.”
This January, Milonov recorded a song in support of rap artists, whose concerts were canceled. He defended them, but noted that he did not want to hear rap about gays.
In addition, he urged musicians to abandon obscene language in their works. “Sing your songs, but mind your language,” the deputy said in the song.
In October 2018, Milonov sabotaged the opening of an LGBT festival, blocking the entrance to the event with his own body.
