St. Petersburg Governor Alexander Beglov says that Russian soldiers have seen “gender-neutral bathrooms” in Ukrainian schools and therefore “understand very well what [Russia] is fighting for.”

“There’s no need to explain what values we’re defending to these guys who, instead of two bathrooms in schools (one for girls and one for boys), have seen three bathrooms: one for girls, one for boys, and one for gender-neutral people,” Beglov wrote on his Telegram channel after a visit with wounded Russian soldiers.

Beglov said he was deeply moved by the soldiers and they “understood [him] perfectly.”
