People rally in support of Lyudmyla Kozlovska, a Ukrainian activist who was banned last week from the entire Schengen zone due to a Polish request, in Warsaw, Poland, on Thursday Aug. 23, 2018. The protesters demanded that Kozlovska be removed from the Schengen Information System, the database that Poland put her in.
