He went on to suggest, however, that discriminating against gay people is important for maintaining population growth:
Putin says while some European nations have allowed gay marriages, “the Europeans are dying out … and gay marriages don’t produce children.”
He added that heterosexual couples should have more children to reverse a population decline, saying “let us make our own choice, as we see it for our country.”
They both seem to be cut from the same intellectual cloth, so to speak.
