‘United Russia’ political candidates use Conchita Wurst cartoons for their ‘Anti-Gay’ manifesto. These are the claims made by both The Moscow Times and Gay Russia.

September 14th will see the election of the City Council members for the city of Murmansk in Russia. In an alleged campaign video two candidates Oleg Guzya and Diamond Gismeeva use an anti gay video manifesto depicting a cartoon image of Eurovision Winner Conchita Wurst and a voice over slogan “Against The Flood Of Gays” where both men shake hands on the comment.

Both candidates are standing for the current ruling party ‘United Russia’. Gismeeva is a famous Russian athlete and 9 times world kickboxing champion. You can watch the alleged video HERE.

Russia has come under scrutiny for their recent changes in legislation on LGBT Rights.

In the words of Conchita Wurst herself “It is better to fight for something that fight against something”.
