Putin will “think twice” before attacking minorities now that Kasatkina has come out as gay, he says.

Igor Kochetkov, a representative of the LGBT Network, was recently profiled in The Guardian; he claims that Daria Kasatkina, who recently came out as gay in an interview, protects s*xual minorities from attacks from Putin because the Russian state does not want to divide people during war.

Kochetkov, commenting on Kasatkina’s public gay reveal, called the act “monumental.” It’s the first time in our country’s history that a sports superstar of Kasatkina’s caliber has come out.

Putin’s Russia is a highly politicized environment. The government in the Kremlin is trying to keep everyone in the country together because of the war. They are more likely to think twice before launching an attack on s*xual minorities if they anticipate a backlash from the public.

This is why, as Kochetkov told The Guardian, Kasatkina’s coming out has the potential to halt future homophobic campaigns.

Kasatkina said she is dating someone.

Russian tennis player Daria Kasatkina came out as homos*xual and in a committed relationship.

In an interview with Russian blogger Vitya Kravchenko, 25-year-old Kasatkina came out as bisexual for the first time. Kasatkina answered “yes” when asked whether she had a girlfriend.

Kasatkina confirmed, “Yes, [I currently have a girlfriend].” Currently the best female tennis player in Russia, Kasatkina, has said she was relieved and at peace after disclosing her sexuality. “It’s not possible to lead a life hidden away.

Certainly not in the long run. It’s just too challenging. There is no use in trying because you will remain fixated on it until you voluntarily break free. It is entirely up to you how to go about it and how much information you choose to reveal “That’s what Kasatkina had to say. Just be happy with who you are and ignore the rest of the world.
