Former British Prime Minister David Cameron spoke about conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the situation of LGBT people in Russia. He wrote about this in his new memoirs.

Cameron was concerned about the adoption in Russia of a law banning “gay propaganda” and raised the issue of the rights of LGBT people in a private conversation with Putin.

“It was our coolest conversation. He said that population decline is a problem for Russia and that he needs men to marry women and give birth to many children, ”ex-Prime Minister Cameron quoted Putin as saying.
