Ukraine: Trans rights demonstrators attacked during Kiev march

Two demonstrators for trans rights were attacked with pepper spray in Kiev after a transgender rights march was disrupted by far-right counter-protesters on Sunday.

Around 40 people were taking part in the demonstration, holding rainbow flags and banners denouncing homo- and transphobia. Far-right counter-protesters reportedly threw smoke bombs into the crowd and attacked demonstrators with pepper spray.

Footage shows the two injured women being treated by paramedics at the scene.

Police reportedly ushered demonstrators into a subway station and blocked the entrance … . One Canadian journalist was reportedly punched in the face by counter protesters near the subway station. The demonstration was held two days ahead of the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, which is observed on November 20.
