Before that, more than 2,000 people wearing traditional Ukrainian
embroidered shirts marched under the slogan “Our language is our
independence” from the monument to writer Ivan Franko to the square
where the rally was held.

The procession was led by the municipal brass band and about 50
veterans of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists-Ukrainian
Insurgent Army (OUN-UPA), a 1940s nationalist movement.

In 1943-1944, UPA, the combat arm of OUN, fought Soviet partisans and
Polish guerrillas, staged ethnic cleansing and received weapons from
Nazi occupying forces.
