About 300 people are protesting near the building of the Presidential Administration with a demand not to ignore numerous attacks on public activists.
The protesters are calling on the authorities, in particular Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, not to ignore numerous cases of attacks on civil activists and properly investigate them, an UNIAN correspondent reports.
People say the attacks on activists are often masked as robberies or other domestic crimes not to investigate them and not to find the real culprits of these attacks.
In addition, the activists are holding in their hands homemade posters with the inscription: "Silence kills."
The protesters have also placed photos of activists who were beaten for their civil position at least during the current year, and whose attackers were not found.
