Pederasty

 

a sexual perversion involving sexual relations of a man with another man (usually in homosexuality; more seldom under unusual circumstances). Soviet law classifies pederasty as a crime against the person (RSFSR Criminal Code, art. 121). It is punishable by deprivation of freedom for up to five years. Pederasty under aggravating circumstances, for example, involving minors, is punishable by up to eight years imprisonment.
