Gay GOP group Log Cabin Republicans has asked President Barack Obama for details on how the government plans to keep gay athletes and guests safe during next year's Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The request comes after the Russian Interior Ministry confirmed that a recently approved law outlawing “gay propaganda” to minors would be enforced in Sochi.

“The Russian government's statement that no one will be discriminated at the Winter Olympics is nothing more than a hollow assurance from a governmental body that is so anti-gay it has established a law that allows gays – and gay allies – to be harassed, verbally and physically assaulted, and jailed,” Gregory T. Angelo, executive director of Log Cabin Republicans, said in a statement.

“President Obama and the State Department need to present a defined plan that guarantees the safety of our nation's Olympic competitors,” he said, adding that he wants the Obama administration to pressure the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to never put “gay athletes of the world in a situation where their safety is in question ever again.”
