The Svoboda All-Ukraine Union is planning on October 14, on the 70th anniversary of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, to hold a march of fight in Kyiv, the party reported on its Facebook page. 

On October 14, the Eastern Rite churches (Orthodox and Greek Catholics) celebrate the Holy Virgin holiday, which was one of the most important holidays of the Zaporizhia Cossacks and is the day of the creation of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA). Starting from 2005, marches and rallies of Ukrainian nationalists are held in various cities of Ukraine on this day.
