Russian so-called anti-gay laws, full texts in English

Western media and politicians went in overdrive attacking Russia's so called "anti-gay laws" while pretty little is known about Russian laws portrayed in media as "anti-gay".
Western participants of these heated debates usually reveal full ignorance of Russian laws & utter incompetence as they don't know how to use wikipedia & google translate.
That's why I decided to put these controversial laws here in full translation from Russian into English for further reference. Some parts of the laws dealing with homosexuality I underlined using different background color.

In June 2013 Russian parliament passed & president Putin signed a law which amends 3 already existing laws:
 1. Federal Law of 29 December 2010 № 436-FZ "On the protection of children from information harmful to their health and development".
2. Federal Law of 24 July 1998 №124-FZ "On basic guarantees of children's rights in Russian Federation".

3. Administrative Codex of Russian Federation, 2002.

 I won't translate second law about rights of children because critics concentrated on first so-called Mizulina law named after female MP, chairman of parliament's committee on children and women affairs who made protection of children her mission. Third law is Administrative Codex which deals with various kind of social misbehavior and prescribes minor punishment, usually just fines, maximum is administrative arrest for 15 days. It's not Criminal Codex, hence gay propaganda among children considered by Russian law as "social misbehavior".

1st Mizulina law.

 Wikipedia quotes Elena Mizulina, on of the author of the law: "In final text of the law we have chosen clear language that, for example, if a person shows life of gays, it is not propaganda, it is not aimed at dveloping such attitudes in children, it's just information . News stories - also just information, it's not propaganda. If two people of the same sex hold each other hand in hand - this is not propaganda. And if the child is looking for some information, if he needs it, it is also no not propaganda, because there is no purposeful formation of non conventional attitudes of children".

In other words, news stories about gays is OK, showing gays embracing each other is OK, if child discovers on web information glorifying gay life it's OK.

What about the fuss Westerners like to make about these so-called anti-gay laws in Russia? I suspect they are not concerned with gay rights in Russia at all, otherwise why they not protest execution of gays in Saudi Arabia or lengthy jail terms in many other states? These folks advocating repeal of these laws look like pedophiles hellbent on corruption of Russian children with Western made gay porn production.
