We can’t help but wonder what Russian conservative politician Nikolay Kuryanovich – the man who wants to make homosexuality illegal – has to say about this story:

The Russian military is reported to be investigating claims that army conscripts were forced to work as male prostitutes in St Petersburg.

A spokeswoman for [human rights group] Soldiers’ Mothers, Ella Polyakova, told the BBC that in St Petersburg there was “a network of clients” who would pay for sex with soldiers.

Older servicemen are said to have forced younger conscripts into prostitution and then taken the money for themselves.

It’s hard out their for a pimp. Or, rather, Russian soldier.

Although, we can’t blame the commanding officers for making a buck off their subordinates. You know what they say about Russian prostitutes: tasteless but potent.
