Passengers aboard a flight from Moscow to St. Petersburg recently staged an “anti-homophobic” photoshoot, supposedly after realizing that St. Petersburg City Councilman Vitaly Milonov, perhaps Russia’s most prominent anti-LGBT politician, was seated in the row behind them.

A woman named Ksenia (the website PaperPaper identifies her as one of the heads of the lesbian nightclub Infinity) posted on Instagram photographs of her kissing her partner.

Кто там на заднем фоне??? МИЛОНОВ! а нам похер! Мы летим в любимый клуб "Инфинити"

Instagram Post: Who’s that behind us??? MILONOV! But we don’t give a sh*t! We’re flying to our favorite [lesbian] club Infinity!

Later, on her VKontakte social media page, she uploaded a few more photos and a description of what took place aboard the plane. Apparently Milonov silently covered his face with his tablet, when he realized what was happening.

VK Post: Lots of people are asking me about my last post: did we really go and kiss in front of Milonov? Was it really Milonov? Maybe it was just somebody who looked like him? What was the flight like? and so on. Here are my answers: Yes it was really Milonov! As fate would have it, he was sitting in the row right behind us. The whole flight from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Milonov said nothing to us. We staged the photoshoot in front of him, and he hid behind his tablet, when he realized. We’re all super happy. Him—probably not so much. But who cares! Attached is the rest of the photoshoot. #milonov #antihomophobia

Milonov, meanwhile, told Flashnord news agency that the girls “made a bunch of silly faces, photographed themselves, and ran to the back of the plane, where they sat down and didn’t show their faces until the end of the flight.” Milonov calls the women “crazy fools” and “idiots.” 

Ksenia is one of the heads of the St. Petersburg lesbian nightclub Infinity. According to her Instagram post, she and her friends planned to go to precisely this club, after landing in St. Petersburg.
