Ukrainian feminists strip in protest against Belarus Prez visit during Euro final

Kyiv, July 2 (ANI): Six members of the Ukrainian feminist group, Femen, held a bare-breasted protest in Kyiv on Sunday against the visit by Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko to watch the Euro 2012 final.

According to Sports 24, the women stripped off their tops in front of Kyiv's Olympic stadium that hosted the soccer final.

Several women wore balaclavas and brandished rubber batons alluding to Lukashenko's crackdowns on protesters.

One woman wore a wig and a fake moustache to resemble the man once described by the United States as 'Europe's last dictator', who is subjected to a European Union-wide travel ban over rights abuses.

Several women displayed the slogan 'Respect, KGB, UEFA' written on their bare chests, criticizing the tournament's organizers for tolerating Lukashenko's presence during Euro finals.

"Once more UEFA is showing a total lack of scruples," the group, which specializes in topless protests and has held a number of demonstrations against the soccer tournament, said. (ANI)
