London: Pop sensation Lady Gaga has expressed her gratitude to Russian Prime Minister Dimitry Medvedev for opposing regional laws that forbid minors from receiving information about homosexuality.

"Just arrived in St Petersburg Russia. I`m so delighted to see so many monsters at the airport. Take me to the ballet. Thank You Prime Minister Medvedev for not standing by your party`s anti gay propaganda law and instead supporting my show and fans all over Russia.
