The reason for the protest is the death of a 25-year-old Ukrainian Dmytro Nykyforenko after the Polish law enforcement officers detained him and severely beat him. Protesters noted two more similar cases.

“A peaceful protest of the Ukrainian community, together with all the inhabitants of Wroclaw, against the police violence against the inhabitants of Wroclaw. The torture and death of Dmytro Nykyforenko in the sobering-up center is a border that we never had to cross. We want a fair investigation, we want to punish the guilty, we want a promise that it will never happen again in Wroclaw, which is our home,” the organizers of the protest wrote on Facebook.

Shouts of “Shame” and “Bandits” were heard in the direction of the Polish police. Demonstrators carried banners reading “You have blood on your hands,” “I don't want to be afraid of a police officer.”

The action itself was peaceful and without incidents.
