Battle of the Billboards 2010 (Part 1)

Watch Kyiv on the eve of the first round of the presidential election, on the first days of the 2010s.

The pics and vids you’ll see capture the mood and motion in Ukraine’s capital January 1 through January 13.

Today I read a report on your election in a Hungarian net magazine and Tymoshenko was represented as a king of empress.

Ropi,

She’s not a queen yet:)

She’s a cinderella/promise-but-never-deliver-rella/oligarchrella/Kremlinrella (fill in the blank).


Leopolis,

You covered virtually everything! All you need is a few pics and vids:)


Michelle,

Thank you! You’ve seen those billboards yourself! You know how it feels to watch all those faces morph into each other:)
