During the march in honor of the anniversary of the founding of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA), on October 14, one of the columns was carrying a banner reading "White Lives Matter", and its participants burned a poster with the inscription "Black Lives Matter." It was reported by Politnavigator.

One of the activists was carrying a small cardboard poster that said "Black lives matter." When the column stopped, he doused it with a flammable liquid and burned it. After that, the column moved forward and trampled the remains.

During the next stop, the same activist tried to burn both the LGBT rainbow flag and the Russian flag, but they burned badly. As a result, the flags were simply trampled.
