Deputies of the Lviv city council banned on April 26 the use of USSR symbols, communist and Nazi symbols on the territory of Lviv. 74 deputies voted in favour of the decision.

The resolution says that the matter concerns the symbols of "no longer existing state USSR," communist and Nazi symbols, used during mass events or hung out on buildings. Author of the resolution, deputy Yuri Mikhalchishin noted that "we must take a stron-willed decision and to declare European position."

He also reminded that last year deputies of the council took similar decision, but it was appealed by the prosecutor's office.

On June 17, 2011 the Constitutional Court of Ukraine issued a decision, according to which the use of Victory Flag during official events together with the State flag of Ukraine contradicts the Constitution.
