    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.
