Participants of the Equality March had gathered in the city centre – on Prymorsky Boulevard, but they didn’t start the march, as a 112.UA Channel reporter informs.
“Everyone gathered on Prymorsky Boulevard. Up to 100 participants of the Equality March, a lot of police gathered here. Prymorsky Boulevard is surrounded with a fence. I will note, that at the moment the march stopped, as the opponents of the march gathered on Prymorsky Boulevard as well. These are representatives of patriotic organization, there is around half-hundred of them,” he told.
He also added that both sides are standing near the Duke de Richelieu monument, and the march’s way was blocked. The police are splitting the participants and protesters to prevent confrontations.
It’s not the first time, when an Equality March is greeted with protesters in Ukraine. On June 18, participants of Equality March in Kyiv were attacked after the procession ended.
