A protest organized by the FEMEN movement was held near Olympiysky National Sports Complex in Kyiv on Tuesday morning. Several topless young women with placards, "Euro 2012 without prostitution" held the protest outside the entrance to the stadium.

The protest is timed to coincide with the visit by UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) President Michel Platini, who is inspecting Ukraine's preparations for the European football cup.

On Tuesday, Platini was due to visit Olympiysky National Sports Complex.

Several female protestors were detained, put into a police van and driven away.

I would like to detain about 3 of them for a week over at my house. We could protest all night long. These beautiful women need their own TV Show.

The police should start gunning down this Femen group once and for all or at least arrest them and beat them up. Ukraine has enough problems.
