The organizers of the march were activists of the organizations “Student Brotherhood named after Stepan Bandera” and “Native Land”.
As noted by UNIAN, marchers gathered near the monument to Stepan Bandera on Mira Street. There were police officers, doctors, Lviv bikers with national symbols on motorcycles, as well as activists of the people's self-defense of Lviv region, who ensured law and order along the route of movement of the column, tracking possible provocations.
