25 July 2015
A gay couple was attacked by a group of 15-20 young men during a social experiment in Kiev. The experiment set out to record how fellow Ukrainians respond to public displays of affection by gay couples. Zoryan Kis and Tymur Levchuck replicated the experiment from a video released by a LGBT group in Russia. Kis and Levchuck found that beyond the actions of a small aggressive far-right minority the majority of Ukrainians were tolerant to their display. Nic Zecevic and Margaret J. Howell take a look at the social experiments further on The Lip News.

“Right Sector” Vows to Disrupt LGBT Pride Parade in Kiev
Ukrainian nationalists want to prevent the holding of a LGBT pride parade in Kiev. This was reported by the Ukrainian website “Корреспондент.net” with reference to the head of press service of the banned in Russia group “Right Sector” Artem Skoropadsky.
“Today we are forced to agree with LGBT marches and festivals, and thus, to be among sinners and those who cover them. No, we will not calmly watch as the country for which we sacrificed our blood for on many fronts
a reference to the central role of the Right Sector and other extreme right paramilitary gangs in the government’s war in eastern Ukraine
is destroyed from the rear by sneaky methods of hybrid war in the peaceful capital,” he said.
Ukrainian nationalists believe that their duty is to prevent the substitution of notions, “when human baseness and perversion is called the struggle for freedom”. All radicals were urged to come out on the streets on June 12th and prevent the LGBT march by activists in Kiev.
The fuehrer of the Right Sector neonazis, Yarosh, has a cushy job as special adviser to the minister of
Last year, Right Sector and other extreme rightists attacked the Pride parade as well. They threw teargas grenades at demonstrators. In most countries these are illegal to possess if you are not police. Under the new government in Ukraine, they seem to be legal for fascist paramilitaries as well.
There is too much hate in the world. It is not our job to judge one another and mete out punishment.
You are right. In war time, bigotry against, eg, LGBTQ people often expands, as perpetrators hide behind ‘patriotism’.
