I am against using Madonna human rights slogans to increase the popularity of their show. The statement she wants to make in support of LGBT people in St. Petersburg in connection with the adoption of the notorious law banning so-called propaganda - it's just a few words that will be spoken between the songs, " said the head of the organization, organizer of the gay pride in St. Petersburg Yury Gavrikov."We appeal to one small action - a boycott of the Russian Federation. Boycotts concerts by such major stars as Madonna, is much more politically important. It's like a boycott of the Olympics in any country, as do politicians. We call for action, not words," added the activist."I'm sure it will be very nice, very cute and cited, but on the other hand, if Madonna has cancelled a concert, it would bring more benefits to people who are suffering from abuse in Russia," - said, in turn, another activist of "Equality" Maria efremenkov.Meanwhile, not all LGBT organizations in St. Petersburg share this stance. Among those who support a performance by the singer - organization "coming out". Its activists were seen on the approaches to the CCM with the rainbow logo and posters.
