The sexual orientation is not the reason why the Russian citizen can't serve in the Army of his country - The deputy of General Staff Colonel-General Vasilij Smirnov said it in the interview to the radio "Moscow Echo".
As you know the President Dmitry Medvedev has signed the decree for the next conscription.
As the Colonel-General Vasilij Smirnov said in the army there is no place only for "drug-abusers and alcoholics". As for gays, "military registration and enlistment offices are waiting for them". "Homosexuality is not a disease..." - emphasized the high-ranking military official.
