The host of Russia’s top television news show has said that the country’s gay propaganda law does not go far enough and that gay people should not be allowed to donate their body parts.

Dmitri Kisilev, who is also the Deputy General Director of the Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company, made the comments on the show Vesti.

“I think that just imposing fines on gays for homosexual propaganda among teenagers is not enough,” Kisilev said.

“They should be banned from donating blood, sperm. And their hearts, in case of an automobile accident, should be buried in the ground or burned as unsuitable for the continuation of life.”

His hate-filled comments, as reported by, were met with applause from the audience. Kisilev is seen as being hugely influential in Russia.

Recent polls have shown that the Russian public overwhelming backs the recently enacted law that aims to stop minors from being exposed to “nontraditional sexual relations”.

This means that any show of support for gay rights is illegal in Russia, whether it is in public, on television, in print or on the internet.

The passing of the law has led to a growing boycott of Russian products as well as calls for a boycott of the Winter Olympic Games in Russia next year.
