MOSCOW - Russia's national news agency, Vodkavich, has announced that President Vladimir Putin has relaxed his stand on gays at the Sochi Winter Olympics.
President Putin at first had said that gays would be banned from the Olympics, but now he has had a change of heart.
Vodkavich is reporting that the Russian president has modified his remarks and now he says that he will allow gays at the Olympics but only as long as they do not act gay.
He went on to say that if they act gay then they will be asked to leave the premises quickly and quietly.
The president was asked if his Director of Computers Edward Snowden had been involved in his new stance.
He replied that he and Snowden make it a point to never talk about gays or lesbians whenever they visit with each other.
