Russia Warns of Anti-White 'Aggression' in U.S.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday warned that anti-white racism might be building in the United States and said that political correctness "taken to the extreme" would have lamentable consequences. In an interview with political scientists broadcast on national television, Moscow's top diplomat said Russia had long supported a worldwide trend that "everyone wants to get rid of racism."

"We were pioneers of the movement promoting equal rights of people of any skin color," he said.

But Lavrov stressed it was important "not to switch to the other extreme which we saw during the 'BLM' (Black Lives Matter) events and the aggression against white people, white U.S. citizens."

Lavrov accused the United States of seeking to spread what he called "a cultural revolution" around the world.

"They have colossal possibilities for it," he said in the interview.

"Hollywood is now also changing its rules so that everything reflects the diversity of modern society," he said, calling that "a form of censorship."

"I've seen Black people play in Shakespeare's comedies. Only I don't know when there will be a white Othello," Lavrov said.

"You see this is absurd. Political correctness taken to the point of absurdity will not end well."

A lawyer in Novosibirsk has called for a ban on stories about a goat and a tiger in a national park in Russia's Far East, arguing that the widespread media coverage of the pair is 'covert gay propaganda' and poses a threat to Russian children.

The animals gained worldwide fame when Amur the tiger failed to pounce on a goat named Timur after it was released into his enclosure at the Primorye Safari Park as dinner.

Instead of eating his prey, Amur developed an unlikely friendship with the goat and the two were filmed walking around the park together, charming media audiences worldwide. YouTube videos of the pair received millions of hits.

But lawyer Alexei Krestianov has appealed to the General Prosecutor's Office to ban future coverage because it poses a threat to the rights of children, a copy of the letter published on his personal Facebook page on Wednesday, said.

The letter argued that the “positive” exposure given to the “non-traditional co-habitation” of two male animals was “an intrusion into the private lives of underage citizens and covert gay propaganda, as well as an active imposition of homosexuality.”

Krestianov added the stories could have a negative influence on the formation of children's personalities by “arousing interest in non-traditional sexual relationships” and causing confusion over their sexual identities.

Russia's proposed restrictions on condom imports would make citizens more "disciplined," and may also help raise the birth rate, a Cabinet adviser and former public health chief was quoted by Russian media as saying.

Gennady Onishchenko, a former chief sanitary doctor known for his creative approach to medical advice, said Tuesday that "rubber technical goods [condoms] have nothing to do with health," state news agency RIA Novosti reported.

Onishchenko was commenting on import restrictions proposed by the Industry and Trade Ministry earlier in the day, which also called for a ban on X-ray and ultrasound machines, defibrillators, incubators and other medical equipment.

Banning condom imports "will simply make one more disciplined, more strict and discriminating in choosing partners, and maybe will do a favor to our society in respect to solving demographic problems," Onishchenko was quoted by RIA Novosti as saying.

His comments come at a time when sexually transmitted diseases are widespread in Russia and HIV infection rates are on the rise, even as most European countries have succeeded in bringing them down.
