Several dozen activists, relatives and families of Ukrainian hostages held by the Kremlin are picketing Bankova and Instytutska Streets in Kyiv downtown. The families of all those illegally held by Russia united to remind the EU leaders who came to Kyiv for the Summit that the Russian aggression against Ukraine has a humanitarian aspect, and that their relatives have spent a lot of time in captivity - in occupied Donbas, Crimea, and Russia.
