Instead of a Ukrainian Independence Day parade, pro-Russian terrorists marched Ukrainian prisoners through a “corridor of shame.”

YouTube user dima svets posted a video of the column of prisoners that was followed by a crowd shouting “fascists!” Some people tried to force the Ukrainian soldiers on their knees, others threw eggs at them.

Only once did someone shout “Slava Ukrayini!” (Glory to Ukraine!)

Water was sprinkled on the road as soon as the column of prisoners walked by.
