Sex workers gathered in central Kiev on Thursday to demand the decriminalisation of sex work in Ukraine on International Sex Workers' Rights Day. The protesters carried placards demanding legalisation and rights for sex workers. In addition, they donned masks to role-play as Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman and a protester, acting as though Groysman was ready to abolish the... Еще legislation. In return, the sex workers granted Groysman an award of steel eggs, which is the Russian equivalent of the euphemism «Brass balls». Yulia Dorokhova, a member of «Legalife», a Ukrainian sex workers rights organisation, explained they wanted decriminalisation «in order to stop us from being pursued, blackmailed, and that we would not be drawn into various corruption schemes. We want to have equal rights with everyone, to freely choose our profession». International Sex Workers' Rights day, which typically falls on March 3rd, dates back to 2001 when over 25,000 sex workers gathered in India for a festival.
