Russia Portrayed The Eurozone As A Pigs Camp Where Our LGBTQ Flag Fleet

Written by

Late October Russia is still distinguished by its rejection of the LGBTQ community through a tweet from the Russian Embassy located in the UK (@RussianEmbassy), tweet illustrated with an intolerable picture.

Indeed, the tweet said: "If Russia is in decline, why worry? Maybe, real worry is West's decline and that we manage things better?" and it was accompanied by this photo you can see above showing Russia as a very muscular bear in front of which we see the euro zone, depicted here as a concentration camp (you will notice the banner "Euro Zone" which does is reminiscent of the "Arbeit macht frei" at the entry of the Auschwitz concentration camp) above which floats the rainbow flag, the people in the camp being represented as piggy banks.

The truth is actually the opposite of this drawing since LGBTQ people of Russia cannot freely walk the streets, show their love or their belonging to the LGBTQ community for fear of being arrested by the police.
