Leaders of ten European countries have joined Ukraine's president Petro Poroshenko in a Dignity March which took place in Kyiv, Feb 22, commemorating those killed during the Euromaidan protests in Kyiv last winter.
The President of Germany Joachim Gauck, President of Moldova Nicolae Timofti, President of Poland Bronislaw Komorowski, President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite, President of the Slovak Republic Andrej Kiska, President of the European Council Donald Tusk, President of Moldova Nicolae Timofti, President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili and others participated in the march.
People were holding Ukrainian, EU, Georgian, Polish, Lithuanian and Crimean Tatar flags. From time to time people shouted "Glory to Ukraine - glory to heroes!", "Ukraine is Europe!", "Ukraine, freedom, dignity, victory!".
The procession passed through the streets of Institutska, Shovkovychna, Hrushevskoho and ended with a prayer for peace at the Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti), which was the scene of violent protests during the turbulence in 2014 and has since become a shrine to those who lost their lives.
Meanwhile, a bomb has killed at least two people, including a police officer, and injured at least 10 more people at a rally Kharkiv.
The rally was one of several being held to mark a year since the Kiev uprising that led to the fall of pro-Russia leader Viktor Yanukovych.
Security forces have detained four suspects in the attack.
