Russia has recently endorsed Peter Kaluma's stand against LGBTQ activities in Kenya. The Oruko Homa Bay Town MP even went so far as to declare he will take Kenya out of any international treaties that require the country to support the LGBTQ agenda in order to assert its sovereignty over certain sexual norms. In response to this development, the Russian Embassy in Kenya shared its approval of Kaluma's position.

They released a statement claiming their endorsement of anything natural, such as products without any GMO and traditional gender relations. Moreover, they declared they have banned the spread of any LGBTQ agenda or propaganda, either targeting kids or adults.
Russia may have taken this stance due to the overall cultural views of the country. From the implementation of the infamous Gay Propaganda Law to the general attitude of the government regarding the LGBTQ, it is not difficult to see why the country would react approvingly to a similar stance.

While many Russians still believe all people should be treated with respect and dignity, the average population does not believe in wholeheartedly embracing the LGBTQ agenda.

Russia could also be trying to appease the international community. Since their relations with the West have been quite strained, this move could be their way of showing they are not completely out of touch with the rest of the world.
