The Russian conductor Valery Gergiev’s concert in Trafalgar Square tonight (Sunday 11 May 2014) was disrupted by 30 pro-Ukrainian demonstrators and human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell. They were protesting against Gergiev’s support for the Putin regime and for Russia’s interference in Ukraine.

Waving Ukrainian flags and holding a huge banner ‘Gergiev Supports War in Ukraine’, they booed Gergiev as he walked on stage to conduct Prokofiev with the London Symphony Orchestra. They then pointed at Gergiev and chanted “Shame on you”.
