Femen activists face charges after staging a topless rally outside Ukrainian …

The two women were arrested after demonstration with 'stop homophobia' placards

Two FEMEN activists are facing charges after protesting outside the parliament in Kyiv.

The topless women joined a small rally on Wednesday, demanding amendments to Ukraine's anti-discrimination laws. The pair were arrested carrying the slogan ‘stop homophobia'.

They undressed outside the assembly, before being dragged away to a waiting police car. Later inside the parliament, lawmakers voted through the amendments.

The anti-discrimination laws are a key requirement for Ukrainians to be able to travel visa-free to the EU.

FEMEN is famous for targeting high profile events – such as the damaging of Notre Dame after the abdication of Pope Benedict.

The mission of the "FEMEN" movement is to create the most favourable conditions for the young women to join up into a social group with the general idea of the mutual support and social responsibility, helping to reveal the talents of each member of the movement.
