As of 8.30 a.m., no activists were spotted in the downtown Kyiv; the police, the National Guard and K-9 units are maintaining security on the city’s central streets. 112 Ukraine TV channel reported this on Monday morning, as Ukrainians are to mark the Day of Dignity and Freedom and the 3rd anniversary of the Euromaidan movement.  

‘No active movement is observed right now. Later today, people are expected to gather near the Presidential Administration and hold the rally there. They will also come to the Instytutska street, where brutal mass murder took place on February 20, 2014; they are to lay flowers and hold the memorial service to pay tribute for those who deceased during the Revolution of Dignity in January-February 2014. Families of the perished protesters will be present, too,’ the reporter said.  

Another public action will be held at Maidan Nezalezhnosti Square; the Euromaidan activists who suffered from police brutality on November 30, 2013, are expected to rally against the dragged-on investigation into the case.
