Units of Ukraine’s Security Service will work more intensively than usual during the religious procession in Kyiv slated for July 28. Stepan Greshchuk, Chief of the Security Service’s Main Department in Kyiv and Kyiv region, said this on Thursday evening.

On July 3, the religious procession left Svyatohirska Lavra monastery in Donetsk. The people headed to Kyiv, to unite with the local religious pilgrims and mark the anniversary of Christianization of Kyiv Rus’. The columns are to meet in the Ukrainian capital on July 27, the day before the solemn event is traditionally observed.    

Law enforcers expect possible provocations by pro-Russian activists, perhaps Kremlin-backed militants, who are reportedly among the pilgrims.
