How was the gay parade in the center of Kiev
Over 2.5 thousand people took part in the gay parade held in the center of Kiev on June 18, 2017. Enormous security measures were taken: the procession was guarded by more than 5,000 police and military personnel of the National Guard.
LGBT activists paraded in a tight ring of police.
Not without excesses: six people were detained, two law enforcement officers were injured. The number of victims is considered insignificant compared with the marches of 2015-2016. It is also reported that at the last moment in order to avoid collisions the route of the procession was changed.
A few days earlier, opponents of the LGBT march in the face of the Right Sector extremist organization threatened parade participants in the network and intended to disrupt the event.
