The head of the Ukrainian capital Vitaly Klitschko, knowing the penalties that may enter the EU vs the Square for refusing to hold the equality March, said that the rainbow parade in Kiev to be. In his opinion, Ukrainians need to develop a sense of tolerance for all different. His impassioned speech he ended with the words “the parade will pass normally and no we have a rapid action, I hope not”. It is obvious that Vitali Klitschko has doubts about the degree of tolerance of local residents. Yes, in fact, how can we not doubt, if Kiev was actively opposed to a color parade.. 30 may on the website of the Kyiv city Council was the registered petition from the abolition of the “equality March”. June 6, under the document was already more than 11,5 thousand signatures. Citizens reminded the authorities that the country still is a real war. The petition said: “Many fighters returned from the frontline with psychological problems. … LGBT activists, among which there is hardly soldiers from the front, and so undermine the fragile situation in the country.” People also wonder why Ukrainian politicians speak of equality only in those cases when it suits them. “The government’s desire to show Kiev as a “European” capital is clear. However, whether using it to neglect the interests of others? After all, to make the “European” it is better to start with clean streets, fight with illegal buildings and the preservation of nature, not of the color “parade,” which only cause provocations, beatings and arrests,” reads the petition text.
View the indigenous inhabitants are not interested and overseas politicians. The U.S. Congress ordered the government Square to provide security for the “equality March” in Kiev. And to protect the minorities will have: . the representative of the banned in Russia “Right sector” Artem Skoropadskyi said that their structure would “strongly discourage” the gay parade. “In short, June 12 in Kiev will be a bloody mess. The organizers of the March there is still time to abandon it”, – he warned the authorities. The experience of the “righties” is: in 2015, the nationalists pelted the participants of the rainbow parade with firecrackers, and in Lviv stones dispersed LGBT conference. Then U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt wrote on his page on the social network:”Manifestations of intolerance in Lviv contrary to a European future, for which Ukrainians gave so much”. Note that the cities of Kyiv and Lviv are two main candidate to host the Eurovision 2017. A big question the safety of the tolerant Europeans.
The head of the National police stated that they will not allow provocations. “Our country must prove that we — civilized people, our place is in Europe, and we’re moving forward,” said Khatia Dekanoidze. The shares will be around a thousand people.
