Boy, Human Rights Watch sure called this one wrong!

The way they lumped "pedophilia to minors" into that bill is egregious. As is the rest of it.

If they do not reverse the movement, I hope the EU sanctions them

Like China, Russia is a country of broken agreements, and just speaks empty promises.
