The National Corps, a far-right organization, is planning to hold a rally in Kyiv on Tuesday, June 4, at the Presidential Administration building. Supporters are being asked to gather on Bankova Street starting at 14:30 (local time) to demand citizenship for individuals who have fought against the Russian-backed separatists. Members of Ukrainian veterans’ groups are also expected to participate in the rally. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated around the demonstration site. Previous rallies by the National Corps have turned violent and clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Kyiv are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
