John, 72, a prominent gay rights campaigner, has previously spoken out against a 2013 law banning the promotion of homosexuality to minors. “I strongly disagree with your view that pursuing policies that embrace multicultural and sexual diversity are obsolete in our societies,” the singer said. The migrants can kill, plunder and rape with impunity because their rights as migrants must be protected. John, who is gay, also accused Putin of hypocrisy for saying in the same interview that he wanted LGBT people to be happy. Putin said Russia is not homophobic, but that a Western willingness to embrace homosexuality and gender fluidity seemed excessive to him. Russia has reportedly censored gay scenes in the movie Rocketman based on John’s life. Every crime must have its punishment,” Putin said in the interview. In 2015, Putin said he would be willing to meet with John. Advertising

In an interview with the Financial Times newspaper, Putin said German Chancellor Angela Merkel had erred by adopting a liberal policy toward immigration from the Middle East. Although the singer played a concert in Moscow in May 2016, no meeting with Putin took place. What rights are these?
