The International Olympic Committee (IOC) claims that Russia's repressive anti-LGBT law won't affect visitors at the Olympics.

The IOC must speak out against the human rights abuses under way in Russia and get an explicit, written guarantee from Russian President Vladimir Putin that visitors to the Olympics will be safe.
