Well, it’s that he doesn’t particularly agree with people changing their genders.

He referred to gender fluidity in The West as ‘monstrous’.

Speaking to the Valdai International Discussion Club in Sochi, Russia, the Kremlin leader said it is “close to a crime against humanity” for young children to learn about transgender issues.

“It is terrible when children in the West are taught the idea that a boy can become a girl.”

He also said:
“(It is a) simply monstrous moment when children are pushed to believe from early on that a boy can easily become a girl, and vice versa. They are pushed to believe they have a choice, imposed while parents are swept aside. And a child is forced to make a decision that can break their life.”

This isn’t the first time Putin has caused controversy with his views on the LGBTQ+ community.
