Hundreds of Ukrainian National Guard conscripts protested in front of the presidential administration building in Kyiv on October 13 to demand their demobilization. As evening fell, they were confronted by injured war veterans telling them to continue the fight against pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine. Despite a cease-fire that went into effect September 5, fighting has continued, particularly around the Donetsk airport. (RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service)
