A pair of musicians in the German heavy-metal band Rammstein on Tuesday defied Russia's anti-LGBTQ policies by sharing a kiss during a concert in Moscow.

Guitarists Paul Landers and Richard Kruspe kissed onstage as the band performed “Ausländer,” German for "foreigner," The Independent reported.

"Russia, we love you," the band said in an Instagram post accompanied by an image of the musicians' kiss.

The moment gained international attention considering Russia's policies banning “the promotion of non-traditional sexual relationships” to youth. The country in 2013 adopted a law that barred “the promotion of non-traditional sexual relationships” to minors.
