Kiev is an amazing city. Religious and monumental monuments to the fallen soldiers, bas-reliefs of simple peasants and workers, all those who obtained the Great Victory with blood and blood peacefully coexist here. On the way to the museum, right on the opposite of the Lavra there is a monument to soldiers-internationalists who died in Afghanistan. Stand silently for a moment, honor the memory. What is nice, no matter how much I go here, there are always fresh wreaths, flowers.
