Ukraine: Nationalists hold protest over alleged defence sector corruption

Members of Ukraine's right-wing National Corps party gathered for a protest in Kiev on Saturday, to demand the arrests of officials for their alleged involvement in a Ukrainian defence sector corruption scandal. Demonstrators protested the perceived impunity of former national Defence Council deputy secretary Oleg Gladkovsky, his son Igor Gladkovsky, as well as other defendants in the... Еще Ukroboronprom scandal. The alleged perpetrators are accused of involvement in embezzlement schemes in which Russian military components were allegedly smuggled into Ukraine and sold to Ukrainian firms at extortionate prices. The rally began at Independence Square and made its way towards the Presidential Administration, with protesters simulating a symbolic 'burial' of corrupt officials by placing wreaths in front of the first rank of special forces guarding the Presidential Administration.
