Ikea omits story from customer magazine in Russia
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, November 21, 2013
HELSINKI — Ikea pulled a story about a lesbian couple from its customer magazine in Russia because of that country's "restrictions on promoting homosexual relationships," the Associated Press reports.
A spokeswoman for the Swedish home furnishings retailer said the article about the London couple and their child appears in its December club magazine print edition available to customers in 25 markets, but not Russia. She said Ikea was acting on the advice of legal experts.
