The protesters demanded that the perpetrators of the bloodshed are held accountable for their actions.
And the second reason: the Ministry of education and science is implementing in the educational process of gender ideology, allows foreign funds and organizations to rewrite the textbooks. Among other things, implemented attempts to remove from the curricula of the words “Papa” and “Mama” as well as mention of the natural traditional family. The Ministry of education is trying to reflash the children, depriving them of any basic identity: gender, national, religious. Citizens demanded that the relevant Ministry stopped the criminal experiments on the worldview and identity of children, the government abolished the so-called “anti-discrimination examination” textbooks as unscientific and ideological.

We don’t need parades unconventional. Ukraine is not supported! The Parliament does not support it!” Also Oksana Bilozir told about what you need to do to Parliament for the preservation of the family: “we Need to demand that revived the Ministry for family Affairs.
