Near three thousand Ukrainian far-right activists, members of party "Svoboda", the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists, Congress of Ukrainian nationalists and Pravyi Sektor, C14 organization, flocked to the Kyiv city center to mark the 73th anniversary of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), nationalist paramilitary and later partisan army that engaged in a series of guerrilla conflicts during World War II against Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, and both Underground and Communist Poland. They also held a march dedicated to Ukrainian heroes and political prisoners.
The activists proclaimed slogans "Free political prisoners", "Glory to the nation - death to the enemies", "Bandera is our hero, Intercession of the Theotokos is our holiday".
