Victory Day Kyiv 9 MAY 2017

With the cold weather breaking and preparation for Eurovision, Kyiv was quite enjoyable. The display downplayed the Soviet WWII contribution but cast Ukraine's contribution as an allied effort, highlighting accomplished Ukrainian- Soviet, British, Polish, and US veterans. An example is Ukrainian-American Michael Strenk (pictured below) who fought in the Pacific.

Speaking of Victory Day in Kiev, my friend Valeriy went back home (he recently relocated to Portugal around the time the Crimea issue started flaring up). Since he knows I'm all into medals and history, he took a photo of his great granddad's medal booklets (he couldn't find the medals).

Also, I'm completely trying to get my 10 posts in so that I can see the database.
