Russian officials accused a girl in the ninth grade of violating the nation's law prohibiting the promotion of “gay propaganda” to minors.

According to The Moscow Times, the unnamed girl from the Bryansk region was investigated in November.

The paper quotes the local minors' commission as saying that the girl “openly declared herself to be a person of nontraditional sexual orientation” and “disseminated information aimed at forming a distorted picture among juveniles of the social equality of traditional and nontraditional sexual relations.”

The girl was placed under the supervision of the local juvenile commission after authorities decided to drop criminal charges against her, noting that she did not sexually assault another person.

Russia's anti-gay law has overshadowed much of the run-up to the Winter Olympics, which opened Friday in Sochi.
