Russia’s largest bookselling chain Chitay-Gorod and the trendy Moscow bookstore Respublika swiftly moved to remove works that deal with “non-traditional relations” upon the law’s signing, according to the independent Novaya Gazeta Europe news outlet. news “You’re not going to buy them anywhere now.”  LitRes, one of Russia’s largest e-book sellers, has asked authors to  rewrite their works to comply with the anti-LGBT law, according to the RBC news website. “If the author doesn’t respond, we’ll analyze the text ourselves and then decide whether to sell the book,” Yevgeny Selivanov, LitRes’ head of content development, said.
