MOSCOW -- A new law banning "homosexual propaganda" in Russia is raising concerns about the state of human rights in a country already notorious for silencing dissent. The legislation is vague but its intent is clear: It is now "illegal to spread information about non-traditional sexual behavior" to minors under 18 , and there are hefty fines for those who disobey. Foreigners are also subject to fines and can be deported. Anti-homosexual crackdowns are nothing new in Russia: In the Soviet regime imposed a law banning sexual relations between men — punishable by a five-year prison term. Although it was lifted after the fall of the Soviet Union, homophobia still runs deep. Gay rights marches are routinely broken up and scenes of police detaining activists, sometimes before demonstrations even begin, are commonplace.

Travelling to Kamchatka. Kamchatka is a mile-long peninsula roughly the size of California, yet only , Soviet persons were allowed to live there, and all with special military clearances. The reason for the secrecy was Kamchatka's far eastern location: A little bit west of the Aleutian Islands, the peninsula was just far east enough to eavesdrop on the United States during the Cold War. While Kamchatka was shrouded in military secrecy, its animal population was left to flourish. Some of the largest grizzly bears in the world roam Kamchatka's interior, while tens of millions of salmon invade its undammed streams and rivers each summer, just as they have for thousands of years.
