"Protecting Children from Information Advocating for a Denial of Traditional Family Values"
The law was known in English media as the gay propaganda law, and since the Games were held in Sochi, Russia it had the potential to affect visiting teams. The law was criticised as being inconsistent with the Olympic Charter, which states that "[discrimination] on grounds of race, religion, politics, gender or otherwise is incompatible with belonging to the Olympic Movement." There were conflicting assurances "from the highest level of government in Russia that the legislation will not affect those attending or taking part in the Games", and from Vladimir Putin who made similar assurances prior to the Games, but warned LGBT attendees that they would still be subject to the law.
