|Protestors outside Ambassador's residence|
The protestors from Femen had arrived in Indian dress and stripped to their waists before climbing up a ladder to reach the balcony of Chander’s residence. They were fiercely opposing to reported instructions by India’s external affairs ministry to carry out more checks of Ukrainian women aged 15 to 40 seeking Indian travel visa. The protestors showed placards that read “Ukraine is not brothel” and “I am not prostitute”. The temperature was minus 4 degree Celsius when the women stripped to stage their protests.
