Event

A civil society group has called for a protest in Kyiv on Sunday, October 6, in opposition to the Steinmeier Formula. Participants plan to gather at 12:00 (local time) at Independence Square. At least 2500 people are expected to attend, according to event pages on social media. Similar protests are possible in major urban areas. 

A heightened security presence and localized transport disruptions are expected. Clashes between security forces and protesters, as well as counterprotests, cannot be ruled out. 

Context

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky signed a deal known as the Steinmeier Formula on October 1 that affords special status to areas in the Donbas region, prompting ultra-nationalist groups to protest in Kyiv and other urban centers. 

Advice

Individuals in Kyiv, and Ukraine more generally, are advised to monitor the situation for potential gatherings and protests, avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized disruption and a heightened security presence in the event of any demonstrations, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
