In Kiev, at the ill-fated Independence [Maidan] Square, insurgents carried out a march of ultranationalist battalions. The mercenaries want official recognition of the fact of war in Ukraine and globally [against Russia], as well as that an immediate offensive is launched to rout the enemy and thus end the war in the Donbass.
The core of the march was made up by militants of “Right Sector”. In the column were also visible symbols of the destroyer battalions “Donbass”, “Tornado” and “Aydar”. Representatives of the battalion “Azov”, despite the announced participation in the action, were not seen among the protesters.
According to Ukrainian media, the action was attended by about 5000 people.
The protest required the authorities to recognize the “ATO” [Anti Terrorist Operation] as a war, that the Minsk agreements are abandoned and all relations with the “aggressor country” Russia are terminated.
In addition, the war criminals demand an immediate offensive so the war in the Donbass turns into triumphant march. […]
