Flag Day

Today is Ukraine’s Flag Day. Perhaps a more important day now than ever.

This is a shot from Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv back in 2011, before the revolution and the Russian invasion.

Revolution in Ukraine

Today we walked up the street where so, so many Ukrainians were shot during the revolution. I cannot get a decent picture on my tablet, but here are some of the memorials with the famous shields the demonstrators used. Notice that one has door handles on it. The Kremlin propaganda claimed the Americans were arming the Ukrainians. With THAT?

Not much defence against snipers!

Lenin is Gone!

This is the spot in the middle of Kyiv where the Lenin statue was famously pulled down during Ukraine’s revolution. The base (that thing on the right) is all that is there now!

Revolution Memorials

This is the street that connects to Kyiv’s main square, where so so many people were shot by pro-Russian snipers during Ukraine’s revolution.

There are pictures and individual memorials to each of the many dozens of people who died.

Some were still just teenagers.
