KIEV, June 2. /TASS/. Activists of the Ukrainian Right Sector radical nationalist group called on Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitschko to ban a gay pride parade scheduled for June 6.
"Most Kiev residents are religious people who are opposed to this event," the Right Sector said in its address to the mayor.
The Right Sector said the parade should be banned to prevent provocations and conflicts.
The radical group that is outlawed in Russia had earlier asked the Azov volunteer battalion to help disperse the parade if it took place in Kiev.
A previous gay pride parade in Kiev was cancelled following similar threats.
