Ukrainian police said they had detained 56 members of far-right radical groups in Kiev on Sunday after scuffles before the capital’s gay pride march. Otherwise, the annual rally of several thousand supporters of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights took place without serious incident. Early in the morning, more than 150 far-right protesters had sought to block off the route of the march through central Kiev. Small clashes broke out when police in riot gear moved to clear the street.
