An appeal of Russian GLBT community to Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian President, missed the addressee. The Russian LGBT-Network have sent a letter to the head of the Russian state, that was redirected by the President's administration to the Russian Ministry of justice.
For reference: In July 2010 the Russian LGBT-Network suggested the President to amend existing Criminal Code by introducing an article penalizing crimes committed on the grounds of gay hatred.
The official response to this letter was given by the Ministry of justice (posted on the LGBT-Network's official site): "We have to inform that your issue would be, as far as possible, taken into consideration by the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation during legal expertise and scrutiny of relevant drafts of the law".
Nonetheless, the Russian GLBT community is not taken aback by that response and it is not for the first time its appeals left unanswered by the head of the Russian state. "We will press further to obtain detailed information on necessary measures taken according to our appeals and will lobby these amendments to the Russian legislation", said the statement of the Russian LGBT-Network that unites 13 regional divisions.
