Yesterday, on October 11, an action of the LGBT community took place in the center of Kyiv. It was attended by nearly a hundred demonstrators. This was reported by Ukrayinska Pravda, citing Suspilne.

It is noted that the demonstration coincided with the International Coming-Out Day. In addition, the participants protested against the suspension of the broadcast of the rainbow flag by the Gulliver shopping mall after threats from right-wing radicals.

LGBT activists told the National Corps that the representatives of the LGBT community were members of the Azovs, but could not speak openly due to the intimidation.
