Ukrainian nationalists from the far-right Svoboda party and the National Corps political group staged a rally near the Verkhovna Rada in Kiev on Tuesday calling for stripping some deputies of right to immunity. Dozens of protesters lit flares and banged on tin barrels with wooden sticks, while security forces lined up outside the parliament to prevent the violence. Protesters claim to strip immunity from several lawmakers that are facing criminal charges including Maxim Polyakov, Borislav Rozenblat, Andriy Lozovoy and Oles Dovgiy.
