Thousands of activists marched in Kyiv on Feb. 22 to honor protesters who were killed during the EuroMaidan demonstrations in 2013-14, and to issue demands to the president, parliament and government.
The activists, from the Svoboda, National Corps and Right Sector parties, called the event the “March of Dignity,” in echo of the “Revolution of Dignity” – the name by which the EuroMaidan Revolution of 2013-2014 in Ukraine is commonly referred.
After gathering on Kyiv’s central square, Maidan Nezalezhnosti, the activists marched to the parliament building.
At the parliament, the activists demanded that the president, government and lawmakers hold a proper investigation into the killings of protesters in Kyiv on Feb. 20, 2014. They also demanded a halt to all trade with Russia and the parts of the country that are currently under the control of Russian-backed forces.
During the march, order was maintained by hundreds of police and National Guardsmen.
