At least 3,000 people including from the Azov Battalion, Right Sector and the far-right party Svoboda, walked in unison through the streets of Kiev, holding torches, beating drums and chanting nationalist slogans to mark Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) day, itself on a national holiday. The demonstrators waved the black-and-red flag of the UPA, the blue-and-yellow flag of Ukraine and the swastika-like flag of the far-right Azov Battalion.
