PACE MPs urged the Ukrainian authorities to prosecute those involved in the breakdown of Equality Festival in Lviv that LGBT activists had not been able to hold in March. Also, the authorities asked "to make every effort so that this never happens again." This is said in a message posted on the PACE website on April, 21.
The report said that 60 members of canceled by the Court decision Equality Festival, were blocked at the hotel by 200 right-wing extremists.
"The police refused to intervene, calling the organizers of the festival provocateurs. Despite the fact that the extremists shouted " kill, kill, kill ", used stones and fireworks, none of them had been arrested. Subsequently, Lviv Mayor confined himself to call the event thoroughly planned provocation "- said in the text of the PACE statement.
