Protesters have gathered outside the Verkhovna Rada today as MPs vote on a package of laws required to enter into a visa-free regime with the European Union, a key part of the EU Association Agreement that was the initial cause sparking the EuroMaidan protests in the winter of 2013.

One of the bills required would prohibit discrimination in the work place on the basis of sexual orientation. On November 5, the Rada failed to pass the package, with this bill being one of the most contentious points.

The slogan for the rally is "Don't Fuck With Us."

President Poroshenko has called on MPs to pass the bill:

Translation: Poroshenko has called on deputies to introduce the changes to the Labour Code on the inadmissibility of discrimination

UNIAN reports that the Rada has already passed Bill Number 2541, which provides for the confiscation of assets from corrupt officials. 

The Rada has also agreed to create a new agency for managing the return of stolen of assets, Ukrainska Pravda reports.
