St. Petersburg Governor Alexander Beglov claimed that wounded Russian soldiers were motivated to fight after seeing gender-neutral toilets in Ukrainian schools, stating that this demonstrated the values they were fighting for.

His remarks have surprised both supporters and opponents of Russia’s war against Ukraine.

The so-called protection of children from Western influence and the strengthening of “traditional values” have been used by Russian politicians and officials to justify the invasion of Ukraine, with similar sentiments expressed by Russian dictator Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the past.

Beglov said, “Those who went through the Ukrainianised version of Donbas with an assault rifle in their hands are well aware of what we are fighting for. These guys have seen toilets in schools where instead of two rooms for girls and boys, there are three rooms for girls, boys and gender-neutrals – they don’t need to be told what kind of values we stand for.”

Boris Vishnevsky, a lawmaker from St Petersburg, said, “according to Rosstat, a quarter of Russians do not have centralized sewage systems and use cesspools and septic tanks”.

Putin reportedly said, “Do we want to have ‘parent number 1, number 2, number 3’ instead of ‘Mum’ and ‘Dad’ here in our country, in Russia? Have they gone completely mad?”

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, “I asked where the toilet was. I was shown a door marked with the letters WC. I asked: ‘Is this for ladies or gentlemen?’ I was told: ‘We have everything shared.’ I didn’t believe it, but it was true. You can’t imagine how inhuman it is; it’s just not human.”
