Ukraine: Transgender rights march at risk of attack

, Index number: EUR 50/1410/2019

Transgender rights activists in Ukraine’s capital Kyiv are planning to hold a march on 23 November to mark Transgender Day of Remembrance. In 2018, the police failed to protect those participating in a similar march from attacks by violent groups advocating hatred and discrimination. This year, there is a serious risk of new attacks and the police must ensure people can safely exercise their rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and expression without discrimination.
