The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Russia sent protest notes to the embassies of the US, the UK and Canada because they posted in June, the flags of the LGBT community. About this informed the head of the state Duma Commission on investigation of cases of interference in the Affairs outside of Russia Vasily Piskarev, reports RIA Novosti.
