ULAN-UDE, March 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Around 4,000 people took part in a meeting held in Ulan-Ude on Wednesday in support of the people of Ukraine and the Russian compatriots in Ukraine, spokeswoman for the information and public relations department of the Interior Ministry of Buryatia Marina Stepanova told Itar-Tass.
Slogans in support of the Russian people in Ukraine, support to freedom of Crimea and anti-fascist slogans were carried by the participants who represented different political parties, trade union and public organizations.
Spokeswoman for Buryatia's Association of Trade Unions Larisa Zhamyanova has declared their "unconditional support to their compatriots in Ukraine." She addressed all those who came into power in Ukraine, saying that "genuine democracy cannot be built without people's confidence." “As a result of the extremists' violence the building of the House of the Trade Unions in Kiev has been burnt to rubble; any activity in defense of the interests and rights of the working people has been paralyzed," the spokeswoman said.
No incidents of violation of public order at the Ulan-Ude meeting have been registered.
Buryatia has one of the biggest Ukrainian diasporas in Russia which numbers around 6,000.
