Russian police detained two gay rights activists who tried to protest outside the Moscow mayor’s office on Saturday.

Human rights groups say a law banning so-called gay propaganda among minors has fuelled attacks on gay people in Russia.

The law has become a focal point of criticism by the West which says it represents a crackdown on freedoms under Russian President Vladimir Putin.
