With the uprising and fall of Ukraine’s government and Russia annexing Crimea… As a fellow Russia cosplayer, after talking to my Hetalian cohorts I decided to make an image just to serve as a reminder or refresher, or even to teach younger Hetalians that there’s a person behind that wig and costume. This can apply to any world situation, as with Turkey’s social media and information flow being on dicy terms, China and Japan’s tensions, and etc., I felt the needs to share this. Background Source

So you want to know about Russia’s gay laws?

If you’re Russian. Individuals engaging in such propaganda can be fined 4,000 to 5,000 rubles (120-150 USD), public officials are subject to fines of 40,000 to 50,000 rubles (1,200-1,500 USD), and registered organizations can be either fined (800,000-1,000,000 rubles or 24,000-30,000 USD) or sanctioned to stop operations for 90 days. If you engage in the said propaganda in the media or on the internet, the sliding scale of fines shifts: for individuals, 50,000 to 100,000 rubles; for public officials, 100,000 to 200,000 rubles, and for organizations, from one million rubles or a 90-day suspension.

If you’re an alien. Foreign citizens or stateless persons engaging in propaganda are subject to a fine of 4,000 to 5,000 rubles, or they can be deported from the Russian Federation and/or serve 15 days in jail. If a foreigner uses the media or the internet to engage in propaganda, the fines increase to 50,000-100,000 rubles or a 15-day detention with subsequent deportation from Russia.

This is a terrible fine that not most Russian’s can afford, and is a huge restriction on LGBT rights. Despite it being specific and pertaining to propaganda, propaganda can be considered hand holding or indecent acts in public as well, so there is certainly no open affection of LGBT couples in Russia.

This being said, as my own personal APH Russia head canons is that he has always loved other nations that are of the same-sex, but with the constant uprising of gay-hate and privacy restrictions in Russia he seems to be much more confiding and private about the matters. He does not agree with his leaders, nor feels that LGBT is wrong in any form. Just because there is a personification of the nation, does not mean that particular personification enjoys or follows their government or rules; however, they do respect them to a certain point until their people decide to revolt.

It’s an issue that is serious to LGBT couples and should be treated in that same respect, as that is why I have crossed “Sassy Gay Russia” off my list as possible Magic anons, despite it start from being a personal joke from my inner circle of cosplay friends. Cheering up a fellow friend, I roped my dress shirt together and acted like “Amelia” while popping my hip and being a sassy character, along with a vivid pink scarf and mod sunglasses. It made them laugh, and cheered up their day; however, in realization of these truly terrible rules, I will put this magic anon to rest for the time being; however, I want fellow followers to know that it is okay to do certain issues in Hetalia and draw them about, as it teaches some whom had no interest in history before about the importance in learning of the world and their policies, even their own nation. I want you to take away one thing from this: Be proud of the freedoms we have here in America, but care and wish for those whom do not have the same freedoms yet to one day be allowed to be themselves.
