"Gay" soccer scandal rocks homophobic Russia

(Editor's note: As Russia's Duma debates banning "homosexuality propaganda," the nation is in an uproar after two professional soccer players are being accused of being boyfriends. Gay Star News has the story.)

Two top-level Russian footballers have sparked outrage after a series of "gay" holiday pictures have emerged.

Pavel Mamayev, 24, a midfielder for CSKA Moscow, and Alexander Kokorin, 21, a striker from FC Dynamo Moscow, are believed to be in a relationship after ‘intimate’ photographs of them were posted on the Internet.

On VK, an Eastern-European social network similar to Facebook, Kokorin posted one of the pictures, saying "I love him."

Other snaps include the two hugging, sharing dinner, going to a basketball game, and having a bath together.
