Anton Belyakov, a deputy from St. Petersburg, put forward a suggestion to ban  underage individuals from attending Lady Gaga concerts in Russia in December.

According to Belyakov, he has sent adequate requests to the Prosecutor General, the Prosecutor's Office in Moscow and St. Petersburg. The official has also sent letters to the mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, the governor of St. Petersburg Georgy Poltavchenko, Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky and to organizers of the tour, Forbes reports.

The deputy claimed that the singer's show hurts people's religious feelings. In addition, he said, Gaga's show does not fall under 12+ category, determined by organizers. Belyakov added that he had had addresses from citizens who said that Lady Gaga's shows in Russia would affect their religious feelings, due to the singer's excessive sexual emancipation.

According to the director of the Institute of Spousal Psychotherapy, President of the "Children's Health" Fund and a member of the American Psychological Association, Alexander V. Kuznetsov, it is not up to deputies to either prohibit or allow something to children. It is up to parents.

"At least, the age limit should be set, and let parents decide for themselves whether they want their children to go or not. If there is the 12 + icon, those who disagree may resolve the issue at court rather than appealing to teenagers or legislation," the psychologist told Pravda.ru.

Lady Gaga will perform in St. Petersburg on December 9 and in Moscow on December 12 as part of her world tour, Born This Way Ball.
