The march comes three days after ‘Vyshyvanka Day’, a celebration started a decade ago to promote Ukrainian national identity and culture. Participants descended on Downing Street, before walking past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, according to Hromadske TV.

Photographs uploaded to Facebook on May 22 show several participants waving flags of Ukraine and the former Ukrainian Insurgent Army.
