A same-sex couple from Russia told the press that the capital’s MFC had stamped their marriage registration stamp in their passports.
On January 4, the Russians, 27-year-old Yevgeny Voitsekhovsky and 28-year-old Pavel Stotsko, registered marriage in Copenhagen (Danish law allows gay marriages). After returning to Moscow, they submitted registration documents to one of the city MFCs, where they were stamped with the appropriate stamps on the “Marital Status” page.

One of the spouses posted photos of stamps on Facebook as evidence and separately noted that this is not about the registration of same-sex marriage, but about its recognition. The young people brought to the MFC a marriage certificate issued by him in Denmark, on the basis of which the department stamped.
The legislation of the Russian Federation recognizes marriages concluded on the territory of another country, if the union does not contradict the laws of this state. According to Art. 158 of the Family Code of the Russian Federation,The following conditions can become obstacles to recognition: if one of the spouses is in another marriage, if the bride and groom are closely related or one is the other guardian, as well as in the case of mental incapacity of one of the spouses. Since the marriage of Wojciechowski and Stotsko does not contradict the mentioned article, there was no reason to refuse to affix seals to the MFC.
Opinion
This precedent brought out of itself the famous geekortts, State Duma deputy Vitaly Milonov. In his Facebook, he posted an angry post in which he called the newly-made spouses "homozhivotnymi" and ordered "to drive them out of Russia with a one-way ticket, burn their passports and take them as dogs." He also promised to find and sue the guilty officials.
Opinion
Another State Duma deputy, Anatoly Vyborny, promised to eliminate this “loophole in the law” and called the incident “a bright indicator of a complete decline in morality”. We remind you that, according to a recent survey by the Levada Center, 83% of Russians strongly condemn same-sex relationships.
The web responded to the news ambiguously: someone agrees with Milonov, others congratulate the Russian LGBT community with a precedent. Still others found the news "fake", and passport photos - fake.
