The Rivne City Council in western Ukraine has banned the holding of equality marches. The local lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community had plans to hold an event on January 1 in the regional capital located 327 kilometers west of Kyiv. The ban, initiated by the head of the council’s budget committee, city councilman Oleh Karpyak of the nationalist Svoboda party, cited the Family Code as justification.
