The National Corps, a far-right organization, is planning to hold a rally in Kyiv on Thursday, June 6, in coordination with Ukrainian military veterans. Supporters are being asked to gather outside of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament building) at 10:00 (local time) to call for parliament to pass a bill that will simplify the procedure for foreign volunteers who have fought against the Russian-back separatists to obtain citizenship. 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.
