On that day, Kyiv hosted a congress of the World Association of Newspaper Publishers and the World Editors’ Forum. A number of Ukrainian journalists silently protested against curbs of freedom of speech and growing pressure on journalists since the election of President Viktor Yanukovych in 2010.

 They brought in a number of self-made posters. Some of them had Stop Censorship slogans, others listed recent facts of pressure on TVi, an oppositional TV channel,  and demanded to make public the secret trial of the murderer of journalist Georgiy Gongadze 12 years ago, among other things. The posters contained Ukrainian text on one side, and English on the other.

Some of them were confiscated by a worker of the presidential guard service, and the process of confiscation was videotaped by journalists.
