Ukraine Parliament has passed the first hearing of the law prohibiting any demonstrations and public promotions of the LGBT community in October. Hundreds of activists gathered in Kiev, in spite of the presence of homophobes who let off gas, to opposed to a new law which will harden the first one even more.

 

This first law will sentence to five years in jail, any person who imports, produces or distributes LGBT material and the new one would prohibit any positive depiction of homosexuals including gay pride marches as reports Euronews.

One protester said: "We came out to protest against the draft law which restricts my personal rights, human rights in general and freedom of the press."

Another woman was angry that the demonstration had not been approved: "On December 10, it’s World Human Rights Day. But it seems to be irrelevant here in Ukraine. Authorities and their representatives are preventing our supporters from joining us here."
