Many in the
march of some 100 people, including human rights activists and LGBT
sympathizers, were protesting a law that bans the “promotion” of homosexuality.

One participant
sustained a broken nose, while others were sprayed with teargas. Police
detained six people.

Ihor Mykhalko,
Kyiv police spokesperson, said all six people detained on Dec. 8 are accused of
using teargas for hooliganism purposes. “This is a petty crime. There has been
no court ruling yet as far as I know,” Mykhalko told the Kyiv Post.  He refused to identify the persons detained
are members of any organizations or political parties.
