Rammstein guitarists Paul Landers and Richard Kruspe kissed onstage during the band’s set at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium this Monday (July 29).
The kiss was in direct defiance of Russia’s “gay propaganda” law, which was passed and enacted in 2013.
Its stated aim is to prevent children from being exposed to homosexuality by making it illegal to present any homosexual act as normal.
Under the law, foreigners can be arrested and detained for up to 15 days, or fined up to 5,000 rubles, then deported.
RAMMSTAIN posted the picture on Instagram of two guitarist kissing each other with following message: “Russia, We Love You!”
