'Crimea Is Ukraine': Pro-Ukrainian Demonstrators Show Their Support

After weeks of lingering on the margins, pro-Ukrainian Crimean protesters came out in force Saturday in their first sizable demonstration since the peninsula’s parliament passed a controversial request to be folded into the Russian Federation. About a hundred protesters waving Ukrainian flags, chanting “Glory to Ukraine!” and occasionally breaking out into stilted versions of the Ukrainian national anthem marched through the Crimean capital, Simferopol, on an overcast afternoon. Along the way, they marched through a city park and stopped at a Ukrainian military base where soldiers handed flowers out to the women in the protest — a nod to today’s celebrations of International Women’s Day.
