Political views

He spoke up negatively about the Russian gay propaganda law, comparing it to a 'witch-hunt', which is created only for political PR and public distraction from more important issues. However, he doesn't think that it's necessary to legalize same-sex marriage and LGBT adoption because it can provoke a negative reaction in society.
