A member of the Svoboda Party, Lubomir Melnichuk, noted that Lviv is a European city, so he should take part in honoring those killed during World War II, as is customary in European practice.
By decision of the City Council, 8-9 May on the streets of Lviv appear state flags with black ribbons. In addition, there will be no celebrations and entertainment. On these days, a ban on the use of Soviet, communist and Nazi symbols is introduced in the city.
According to Melnichuk, this initiative should save the city from possible provocations. In addition, with 7 in May, law enforcement officers of the Lviv region will take military monuments under protection.
