KIEV, June 12. /TASS/. The so-called March of Equality of sex minorities was organized in Ukraine’s capital city for the fifth time this Sunday.
Several hundred people marched the route, TASS reports from the site.
About 6,000 police and National Guard provided security at the event. Those opposing the idea of the march made several attempts to block the participants, but the police would not allow it.
The march lasted for about half an hour.
Meanwhile, leader of the Right Sector group, which is outlawed in Russia, Andrei Tarasenko said in an interview with the 112 Ukraine channel after the march that despite the quiet situation around the march "time will come and participants in the event will suffer."
In November 2015, Ukraine’s parliament (Verkhovna Rada) adopted laws, which bring the country closer to a visa-free regime with the EU, including a law banning discrimination of sex minorities.
