The story “Prisoner of the Caucasus” was removed from the school curriculum


The story “Prisoner of the Caucasus” by Russian writer Vladimir Makanin was removed from the school curriculum due to the so-called propaganda of LGBT issues. About it writes TASS with reference to the first deputy head of the State Duma Committee on Education, Yana Lantratova.

The deputy claims that she “began receiving massive requests from parents” regarding the fact that the story is in the school curriculum. “This work tells about the homosexual attraction of a Russian soldier to a captured Caucasian militant,” Lantratova said.

In her opinion, this work “offends the honor and dignity of Russian soldiers.” “It was not for the sake of such stories that we sought the creation of unified educational programs. I am grateful to the Ministry of Education for the fact that they responded promptly, and in March Makanin’s work was removed from the educational program,” the deputy said.

  • Since December 2022, the dissemination of positive information about homosexuality, bisexuality and transgenderism has been prohibited in Russia. For this, fines of up to 400 thousand rubles are provided for citizens and up to five million rubles for organizations.
  • On November 30, 2023, the Supreme Court of Russia, at the request of the Ministry of Justice, decided to ban the non-existent “international LGBT movement” and recognize it as extremist.
