KyivPride 2019 Equality March

The March of Equality "KyivPride 2019" ended in the center of the capital, reports 112 Ukraine TV channel's correspondent.

"The column was fairly quiet, the procession ended. Its participants went into the subway, which is located in the perimeter under police protection. Now people are going home," said the correspondent, noting that March lasted for about an hour.

From the very beginning of the event, the police literally fenced the whole center of the city - it was impassable. In addition, the column was accompanied by dog handlers. According to the correspondent, the sound of an explosion was heard during the procession - probably from a big firecracker.
“Now, the main task of the police is to keep the order and not to let provocateurs around the perimeter to get inside,” the journalist added.

As is known, opponents of the march also gathered in the center of the capital. There are about 500 people. They are protesting not for the first day: first they tried to ensure that the march was canceled altogether, but on the eve they decided to block part of the streets so that the march participants could not walk along them.

"Mostly they are aggressive, we have heard a lot of obscene language towards the participants of the march. They say they do not call for violence, they support the traditional family and against the propaganda of homosexuality, especially when it comes to young children. Some of the protesters have already dispersed," the correspondent stated.
