Ukrainian nationalists from the ultra-right Svoboda party and the National Corps staged a rally near the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada in Kiev, on Tuesday, calling for stripping deputies of right to immunity.

About two dozen protesters lit flares and banged on tin barrels with wooden sticks, as security forces lined up outside the Verkhovna Rada.

Protesters demanded to strip immunity from people’s deputies that are facing criminal charges including Maxim Polyakov, Borislav Rosenblat, Andrei Lozovoi, Mikhail Dobkin and Oles Dovgy.
