IKEA Family Live magazine will cease to be published in Russia because of the ban on promotion of homosexuality

According to them, the decision was made due to the fact that some publications presented in the publication may be regarded as illegal under the law banning promotion of non-traditional sexual relations among minors."We are trying to talk about people with different lifestyles, different values, traditions, habits and interests. The journal is intended for a family audience. He has not and, in our opinion, should not have the age limit. However, we keep doing business with respect to the laws of the countries in which we operate, so in order to avoid disturbances, we decided to stop the issue in Russia, "- said in the company. Online edition of the IKEA Family Live, which presents a variety of ideas for home improvement is published in 25 countries. The content of the magazine for each of them remains the same. Back in 2013, IKEA has already appeared in the middle of a scandal in connection with the issue of advertising publications, where one of the materials tells about lesbians Clara and Kirsty together to raise a child and equip their home in the UK. The company had to remove the story from Russian edition, so as not to violate the laws.
