British actress Tilda Swinton has defied Russiaâ€™s new anti-gay law by boldly standing in front of the Kremlin holding a rainbow flag.
"In solidarity. From Russia with love," she has explained in a statement.
The Oscar winner's stand comes just after Russia has enacted a law banning â€˜gay propagandaâ€™.
It has introduced fines for anyone who promotes information â€˜directed at forming non-traditional sexual setupâ€™ in minors.
Foreigners can not only be fined, but also arrested for 15 days and deported.
