Thousands of Ukrainians in Kiev took part on Sunday in marches in memory of reported victims of Donetsk People's Republic militants in a tragedy on January 13 near Volnovakha in Donetsk Oblast. On that day reportedly thirteen people on a bus were killed and sixteen wounded when separatists struck the bus with a Grad missile launcher near a Ukrainian checkpoint.

The same marches also took place in other major Ukrainian cities, including Odessa, Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporizhia as well as some towns in Donetsk and Luhansk regions under Ukrainian control.

Mayor of Kiev Vitali Klitschko said, "Here are those, who are disturbed with a problem of terrorism. Those who want to stop this evil."((uk))

The march ended with a public prayer for victims of terror. The Major Archbishop of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church Sviatoslav Shevchuk and the Patriarch of Kyiv and All Rus’ - Ukraine Filaret, as well as representatives of Ukrainian Orthodox Church, Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, Clerical Board of Ukraine's Muslims, Armenian Apostolic Church took part in this prayer.
