According to the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN, some 2,000 people, including the former and current members of the Ukrainian parliament, marched through the streets of Kiev on Thursday, carrying torches to mark the birthday of Ukrainian nationalist Stepan Bandera. The rally ended with the leaders of Ukraine's far-right Svoboda (Freedom) party and Pravy Sector (Right Sector) movement addressing the demonstrators at Maidan Nezalezhnosti (independence Square).

This is not the first time LifeNews journalists are being attacked while working in Ukraine. Late in November the channel's reporter Yevgeniya Zmanovskaya had been attacked in Kiev while she was covering the disorders during the local football fans attempt to cut short the concert of a Ukrainian singer Ani Lorak.
