Ryzhova made headlines after winning gold in the 4 × 400 metres relay at the 2013 World Championships in Athletics, and thereafter kissing her Russian teammates as they received medals on the podium. On 18 August 2013 SkyNews reported the photo of the kiss between Ryzhova and
as a political gesture but later retracted and said that there was a "huge debate on Twitter and other media about whether it was in protest at the government's anti-gay law"—a law banning "homosexual propaganda" in Russia.
During the medal ceremony for the women's 4×400 metres relay images of Kseniya Ryzhova and
sharing a kiss on the lips spread through social media and were interpreted as a protest against the anti-gay laws. Both Ryzhova and Gushchina denied any intention to make such a protest, rather they were simply happy with their athletic success, and stated that they were married to men. Although reports were principally focused on the pair, all four of the Russia relay runners briefly kissed each other on the podium. Ryzhova described her assumed connection to LGBT as insulting. The Russian Minister for Sport, Vitaly Mutko, said that Western media had over-emphasised the issue, noting that same-sex relations are not illegal in Russia and sparser coverage of the issue in domestic media.
