In the context of the law on LGBT propaganda, a proposal of the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) to ban sex reassignment operations appeared.

This was stated on November 4, 2022 by Vakhtang Kipshidze, Deputy Chairman of the Synodal Department for Public and Media Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate.

“Our proposal to ban sex-change operations appeared in the context of the adoption of the law prohibiting the promotion of non-traditional sexual relations. The fact is that this law also prohibits the propaganda of sex-change operations,” he said on the television channel ” Solovyov Live”.

Kipshidze specified that the proposal “was not invented by chance”.

“We face this propaganda, unfortunately, we also face it in the Russian media space. But, of course, the roots, the origin of this propaganda are in foreign media,” he added.

The ROC representative expressed hope that both propaganda and gender reassignment operations would be banned in Russia.
