British Ukrainians came to the Ukrainian embassy to express their concerns over investigation of the Maidan crimes

The UK-based London Euromaidan community has marched through the streets of the British capital to demand the investigation of Maidan crackdown by Ukrainian authorities in late November 2013. 

The group of ethnic Ukrainians travelled to Ukraine's embassy in London to hand over their demands to the country's interior ministry, the VIDIA news outlet reports. 

The ralliers want the internal investigation on Maidan crackdown to be published. Also, they spoke out against reemployment of the officials responsible for the violent crackdown on students during the protests at Maidan square in late 2013.

The Ukrainian diaspora of London demands to renew investigations into the violence against the peaceful protests. In their opinion, Ukraine's interior minister Arsen Avakov must give his official explanations on acting Ukrainian MP Sergey Liovochkin's alleged complicity to crimes against Maidan.
