On January 1, the march in honor of Stepan Bandera took place. They marched in Kyiv with torches and shouted: ‘Muscovites at knives’.

Up to 1,000 participated in the march. It confirmed the tendency of reducing the number of partakers of rallies of far-right activists.

Earlier, Joel Lion stated that there is an increase of anti-Semitism rates in Ukraine since people let themselves dissert on the number of Jews in Ukrainian business circles and speak absurd things about Jews on TV.
