KIEV, November 2. /TASS/. An action organized in protest against the elections held in the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics on Sunday has failed to attract numerous protesters with just about 200 people getting together in central Kiev.
Participants in the action presenting themselves as people “displaced from the east of Ukraine” congregated on Independence Square (also known as Maidan), carrying Ukrainian and NATO flags, as well as flags of the ultra-nationalist Right Sector.
They appealed to the Ukrainian authorities not to recognize the election and to end a war so that refugees could return home.
A protest rally, held under nationalist slogans, was short — to European Square located just 300 meters from Maidan. Some participants refused to be photographed, saying they planned to get back to their homeland and feared problems they could have because of the rally.
Reaching European Square, its participants read a prayer and dispersed. Similar actions are planned on Sunday in the Ukrainian cities of Dnipropetrovsk, Mariupol, Ivano-Frankivsk, Lviv, Cherkassy, Slovyansk and Zaporizhie.
