Russia will not suspend its anti-gay laws during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, The Los Angeles Times reports.

On Thursday, Russia's sports minister Vitaly Mutko told R-Sport that, "An athlete of nontraditional sexual orientation isn't banned from coming to Sochi. But if he goes out into the streets and starts to propagandize, then of course he will be held accountable."
