The activists arbitrarily set the flagpole and raised the UPA flag near the Dnipro RSA, receiving the "blessing" of the OCU representatives.

In Dnipro, on the square in front of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration and Regional Council, representatives of the OCU "consecrated" the UPA red and black flag, reports "Ukrinform”.

According to the edition, a group of activists set a flagpole, on which after the "consecration" by the OCU clerics and singing the UPA hymn the red and black flag was raised. The event was attended by about 200 people in total. The flag-raising ceremony was followed by a meeting. 

At the same time, the regional authorities say they are not against the flag, but public hearings are also needed to set it in a certain place. It is reported that the activists did not wait and set the foundation first, and then the flagpole with the flag. 

Earlier, the UOJ wrote that the OCU "hierarch" served a lity for the Uniate Stepan Bandera.
