Moscow, June 17, Interfax - Civil Platform leader Mikhail Prokhorov has opposed the ban on homosexual propaganda.

"I think we are breaching the international convention of human rights and freedoms we have signed. My position is very simple: this is a personal affair. It is a personal affair who has sex with whom. For instance, I am against both heterosexual and gay pride parades," he said on the Iron Ladies program aired by NTV.

This is an infringement on personal freedom, Prokhorov added.
