KIEV (Sputnik) - Several hundreds of people participated Tuesday in marches commemorating the birthday of the Ukrainian fascist collaborator Stepan Bandera in Kiev, media reported.

According to the Vesti news outlet, about 500 people joined the march with about 50 people carrying flags of the Ukrainian National Corps party.

The Ukrayinska Pravda newspaper reported that another demonstration was held in the city center Tuesday night, with members of several radical nationalist organizations, including Right Sector.

The rally was headed by Ruslan Koshulynskyi, a presidential candidate from Svoboda party, the media added.

A total of 450 police officers and National Guard servicemen were maintaining order at the marches. No incidents of misconduct were reported, the police said in a statement. Bandera was a Ukrainian nationalist leader who collaborated with Nazi Germany during World War II and was responsible for numerous atrocities against civilians as a leader of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA).
