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.
