On May 1, 2014, during a May Day parade of some 100 000 workers carrying banners “Putin is right,” “Proud of the country” and “Let’s support decisions of our president,” seven brave people marched through the central streets singing the Ukrainian anthem and carrying a giant flag of Ukraine. They were handing out anti-imperialist leaflets saying ‘Enough of raising the empire and resurrecting the USSR’. Four were arrested by the police.
