Kyiv in Colors 4
A Trip to Kyiv City Elections 2008
Enjoy this longitudinal report!
May 4-May 7
There's garbage on the streets because there's garbage in politics
[I can't help but agree with this self-evaluation.]
The prices are growing, the anger is rising!
Incompetent politicians, resign!
[Amen to that!]
The Kyiv municipal administration guarantees: two modern stadiums in Obolon. Already in 2008!
Some dark horse from the Agrarian Party
Election Village on Obolon's main square
Skhid i zakhid razom!
Kyiv needs an honest mayor!
Election Village, again
Kontraktova Ploshcha [Square]
Pretty close, aren't they?
Hetman Sahaidachny Monument
City Hall: Will they make it?
Central Department Store: Will the cross-bundling work?
Vasyl Horbal, the New Mayor
War and peace: Leo Tolstoy Station
Nice rope, isn't it?
Love that perspective! If BYuT breaks Ukraine's heart, there will be enough room in that cage for both of them.
Katerynchuk activists using a strange-looking J-shaped flag
Didn't they use such devices for air conditioning in ancient Egypt?
Lutsenko: For a Corruption-Free Kyiv!
From Kyiv With Love
More balcony BYuT
May 9 (Victory Day)
Party of Regions: Kyivites' prosperty without scandals and scuffles
May 11 (Europe Day)
Obolon's Election Village, again
Laskovy Mai "Beliye rozy," a major local hit of the late 80s-early 90s
Party of Regions: Vote for your own kind!
Perhaps you've already seen these.
As I said, too much paper. And too much stabilnist talk.
Vasyl Horbal, Party of Regions
Lutsenko, BYuT, HAK
I'm voting for the Leonid Chernovetsky Bloc!
Politics in every nook and cranny
BYuT beats Chernoco 3-2
Vasyl Horabal, the new mayor
Archbishop Pavlo of the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra (Moscow Patriarchate) doesn't shun politics. Initially, he intended to run with the Communist Party. He then converted to the Party of Religions...uh...Regions.
Why not? After all, it's people like Pavlo who make religion the opium of the people.
The score still holds!
The team that will change Kyiv for the better!
Viktor Pylypyshyn of the Lytvyn Bloc: Kids First!
Downtrodden and battle-scarred
Chernovetsky Bloc: New metro lines for Teremky and Troyeshchna!
[How about a one-way ticket to Mars?]
Not all people know how to fix them
BYuT beats Chernoco 3-1
Anybody home upstairs?
Kyiv needs Mayor Klychko!
The rap song is hilarious, and so is the exhibit!
The only Commie balcony I've seen
[no more Martian law!]
