A pair of lesbian activists have snapped a photo of a gay kiss in front of the architect of Russia’s ‘gay propaganda’ law.

A photo was uploaded to social media today, showing a couple locking lips in front of extreme homophobic Senator Vitaly Milonov on a plane.

The photo was reportedly taken on a Aeroflot flight from Moscow to St Petersburg.

Milonov confirmed the authenticity of the photo, telling FlashNord: “These crazy idiots were so brave that after taking the photo they ran to the end of the plane, sat there and didn’t even stick their necks out until the end of the flight.”

The Senator is one of the most notorious homophobes in Russian politics, and has been known to affiliate with extreme anti-gay groups to ‘raid’ LGBT events.

He is currently bringing forward legislation that would close a ‘loophole’ in the country’s laws which allowed a lesbian couple to marry.

Irina Shumilova and Alyona Fursova married in a St Petersburg registry office earlier this month, both turning up in wedding dresses and holding bouquets of flowers.

In 2013, Milanov said that gay people were not “normal” and compared being gay to living “with a dog, with a horse, with a sheep, whatever.”.

Milanov’s notorious anti-gay “propaganda” law, was signed in to law the same year by President Vladimir Putin.
