Ukrainian neo-nazis attack gay pride march

This video is about neo-nazis of the Svoboda party attacking Jews in Ukraine.

If Ukrainian neo-nazis are not murdering political opponents … or are not busy with their well-paid jobs as advisers to the minister of defence war … or with attacking Jews … then they will be attacking others, like LGBTQ people daring to march for their rights.

Violent clashes at Ukrainian gay rights march

Several people on march and police officers injured as far-right groups attack parade in Kiev

Saturday 6 June 2015 13.18 BST

Dozens of unknown assailants have attacked a gay rights march in Kiev, injuring several marchers and police officers.

The attackers hurled teargas and smoke bombs at the 300 marchers as they walked along the Dnipro river bank in the Ukrainian capital on Saturday morning.

The Interfax news agency reported that five police officers were injured, while other local media reported four marchers were hurt.

Several hundred riot police formed a cordon to keep marchers and opponents apart, following a warning that the event was threatened by far-right groups.

Some opponents to gay rights tried to break through the cordon. Some demonstrators were attacked after the march dispersed.

On Friday, the organisers for KyivPride2015 said the march would go ahead despite warnings from the mayor, Vitaly Klitschko, who advised that the event be cancelled because of a threat of violence from far-right groups.

  1. From a pro-Kyiv government author:

    Last year organisers called off the march after the mayor of Kiev, Vitali Klitschko, denounced the planned march in homophobic terms, criticised it as “disrespectful” of soldiers being killed in the south-east of Ukraine, and claimed that his police force could not guarantee its safety. …

    This year’s march was preceded by even more heated political arguments and media coverage than in previous years.

    Klitschko refused to meet with the march organisers, called for the march to be cancelled, and initially refused to provide police support. According to Klitschko, the march was not necessary because “in Kiev there is no harassment on any grounds.”

    The march, he continued, would “inflame hatred” and “provoke another confrontation in Kiev.” …

    The Right Sector … promised to mobilise “thousands” to prevent “this sodomite gathering”. “Gay propaganda” was “destructive and doing harm to our Christian nation.”

    According its leader, Dmytro Yarosh, the Right Sector would “put aside other business in order to prevent those who hate family, morality and human nature from executing their plans.” The march would “spit on the graves of those who died and defended Ukraine.”

    Volodomyr Parasyuk, who made one of the most powerful speeches during the Maidan protests of 2013/14 and now sits as an independent MP in the Ukrainian parliament, joined in the attacks.

    He called for the march to be banned, for any LGBT activists who turned up to be taken straight to the front line in south-east Ukraine. …

    around 50 Right Sector supporters attacked the march as it was forming up and also at its conclusion, throwing tear gas grenades, smoke bombs and firecrackers.

    Ten marchers were injured, as were nine police officers.
