Russian court accuses 3 teen magazines of propagating sexual activity

Deputy Prosecutor General Sergei Fridinsky said in a letter to education officials that the magazines Molotok (Hammer), Cool and Cool Girl "exploit underage readers' interest toward sex," and asked that a law suit be filed to have the publications shut down.

For instance, Molotok "regularly publishes materials that pervert underage readers and provoke them to begin sexual life early," Fridinsky wrote. He also asked that "persons responsible" for the publications be prosecuted. In the letter he did not specify whether he was referring to the journalists, the editors or mass media officials, the AP reports.

Yekaterina Mil, deputy chief editor of the Molotok publishing house which prints Molotok said the magazine violated no laws and that it was not advertising sex but merely educating teenagers on the subject.
