Lady GaGa Reacts to Russian Government After Prosecution Threat

August 6, 2013 (1:34 am) GMT
The Monster ringleader says the Russian government could have arrested her last year if they wanted to but chose not to because they 'didn't want answer to the world.'

speaks out against Russian government after it was announced that she could be prosecuted over her gay campaign during a concert in the country last year. "Why didn't you arrest me when you had the chance, Russia?" she taunts. "Because you didn't want answer to the world?"

"Sending bravery to LGBTs in Russia. The rise in government abuse is archaic. Hosing teenagers with pepper spray? Beatings? Mother Russia?" she adds. "The Russian government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom."

Aside from landing in trouble with the Kremlin over her gay "propaganda," the Mother Monster is also accused of breaking the law for entering the country under incorrect paperwork. She allegedly failed to obtain an appropriate visa prior to her concert and travelled the country under tourist visa.

She is not the only performing artist who clashed with the Russian government. Fellow gay supporter is facing the similar trouble, while music band is banned from the country after one of his members shoved its national flag down his pants in a concert.
