For several years now, I think 4, Kiev has been having significant queer pride marches, and for just as many years extreme right wingers have been attempting to violently stop the marches. Consider this BBC story from 2015, for instance. Just how extreme have they been? Well, in 2015 they injured several cops, at least one seriously, in their efforts to disrupt the event. There was another outburst of violence by Ukrainian wing nuts today, but it was followed by large numbers of arrests of these protesters, with no arrests of Pride marchers that I can find. It’s very, very possible that this is a sign that things are getting better.
