Oh no he did NOT just say that! Nyet!
In a recent meeting with a group of volunteers at an Olympic mountain venue, Vladimir Putin was asked by one of them about his attitude towards gay people, especially in light of Russia's anti-gay propaganda laws.
“One can feel calm and at ease. Just leave kids alone, please.”
Excuse us while we pry our palms off our faces with the jaws of life.
How can anyone possibly think homosexuality and pedophilia are linked? It's just disgusting he would make such a gross accusation.
Also, how do you translate "stop supporting laws that could be from the Middle Ages" into Russian?
In response to all this nonsense, Bravo king Andy Cohen served up the best reaction on Twitter:
Putin needs to shut his damn mouth. YOU stay away from children, sir.

That's right, Putin! We haven't forgotten that time you raspberried some frightened kid's belly.
How can we? It's in all of our nightmares!
In our opinion, these anti-gay propaganda laws limit freedom of speech as well as freedom of sexuality! Just stay away from us, Putin.
