Happy New Year, Ukraine! Christmas Photos
We celebrate Christmas twice (Catholics on December 25 and Orthodox on January 7), and the night from December 31 to January 1 is New Year's Day.
Take a closer look: it is decorated with shreds of fabric from which kikimoras (camouflage military costumes) are woven. In addition to "military" decorations, a garland also hangs on the branches. How in your opinion a city that lacks electricity even for residential buildings and offices can afford it? Very simple: the lights of the garlands are fed through an exercise bike (you see it in a photo), on which everyone can sit, pedal and give a little New Year's glow to the festive Christmas tree.
Now Kyiv does not have the funds to buy and decorate the city, so local patrons have done this voluntarily and for free.
We are sure that this is the last military New Year in Ukraine. And we will remember the period, which didn't break but united us.
