Russia Fails In Its Attempt To Block A Law Providing Equal Benefits For UN LGBT Employees

Written by 

Secretary General of the UN Ban Ki-Moon had decided that all same-sex couples could enjoy the same benefits granted to heterosexual married couples even if the couple is from a country or a state which does no legalized marriage equality.

Russia had then made threats, it thought to include blockade on the vote of an important economic law.

But the anti-LGBT motion of Russia was rejected by a 80-43 vote with 37 abstentions.
