Kyiv Days take place on the last weekend of May every year. During the two days, numerous activities are organised around town – parades, demonstrations (for everything – I saw a vehicle demo, and some bicycling demos, and some soccer stuff), concerts, races, etc etc etc. I’m pretty sure the purpose of the weekend is to celebrate Kyiv in the Spring – however, this year’s Kyiv Days were marred by rain (and by the mayoral election campaigners).
I happened to be walking down the main street, Kreshchatyk, when I saw this fire engine and tank rolling down the street. I couldn’t really understand what the announcer was saying, but I’m pretty sure these guys came from Zaparozhia, which is south of Kyiv.
Pretty interesting stuff! Or maybe just a bit random.
