Singer Elton John commented on the statement by Russian President Vladimir Putin about how LGBT people are treated in Russia. The answer was published in his Twitter.

“I strongly disagree with your view that pursuing policies that embrace multicultural and sexual diversity are obsolete in our societies. I find duplicity in your comment that you want LGBT people to “be happy” and that “we have no problem in that. Yet Russian distributors chose to heavily censor my film “Rocketman” by removing all references to my finding true happiness through my 25 year relationship with David and the raising of my two beautiful sons. This feels like hypocrisy to me," the musician wrote.

Vladimir Putin gave an interview to the Financial Times, in which he mentioned the topic of LGBT. In the transcript on the Kremlin’s website, the president’s words are quoted as follows: “I don’t want to offend anyone, you see, we are already being made homophobic, and so on. And we have nothing against gay people. God bless them, let them live as they want. But some things seem redundant to us. "
