Russian PM wants to ban Tom of Finland's stamps


St Petersburg PM Vitaly Milonov, the co-author of his city’s ban on so-called ‘gay propaganda', one of the first such regional laws in Russia, wants Russia’s postal service to return-to-sender any mail bearing the stamps for breaching national laws banning positive depictions of LGBTI people in the public sphere.
 
Milonov wants all mail bearing erotic Tom of Finland stamps to be returned to sender and for Finns to not use the stamps when mailing Russia.The stamps were released by Finland’s national postal service in September to commemorate Finnish erotic artist Touko Laaksonen, AKA Tom of Finland.

I think I'm going to send to him a card with one of the following Finnish stamps.
