Vitaly Milonov, a member of the St. Petersburg assembly, and belonging to the ruling United Russia Party has accused Lady Gaga of breaking the law in St. Petersburg by her pro-gay propaganda.

Milonov, who is the brain behind the city law that bans gay propaganda and a political ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin is exasperated with Gaga’s antics. What’s the use of being the father of a ban, if people can violate it whenever they want?

Reuters reported Milonov of saying about Lady Gaga’s show on Sunday, “We saw that in addition to music, songs and such, there were direct calls for 12-year-old citizens to support the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community.” Milonov also said that he would be filing a complaint over Gaga’s atrocities.

Though Milonov, a political heavyweight in St. Petersburg, had called on the authorities repeatedly to prevent people under the age of 18 from attending Lady Gaga’s show, no one listened to him.

However, offstage, Lady Gaga said that a call threatening to arrest her, if she spoke in support of the LGBT community, had been received by her managers.

While there is talk of Russia considering legislation similar to the ban on gay propaganda in St. Petersburg, not everyone in Russia seems to hold with the anti-gay lawmakers. Last week, in an interview, the prime minister of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev had happened to comment, “not all human relationships are subject to legal regulation.”

Taking Medvedev’s comment as a sign of support, Gaga had instantly tweeted, “Thank You Prime Minister Medvedev for not standing by your party’s anti gay propaganda law & instead supporting my show+fans all over Russia.”

A St. Petersburg court has already rejected a similar complaint and $10 million compensation claim against Madonna last month. That claim had also been brought by the father of the St. Petersburg ban against gay propaganda, Vitaly Milonov.
