Russian Boycott - Keith Pascoe
There have been calls to boycott Russia’s winter Olympics in 2014 due to a recent so called anti-gay law signed by Vladimir Putin in June.
The law bans “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations” among minors.
And there have also been concerns raised over increases in attacks against gay people.
On these shores, a member the RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet has taken his own stand on the situation and has withdrawn from the Irish Russian Chamber Music festival.
Keith Pascoe joins Marian in studio.
