Kiev: Now and Then

Posted on May 4, 2009 by


I personally like those kind of artworks, when photos of one place now and then are carefully merged. We had sometime ago brilliant set of St. Petersburg during the WW2 photos combined with present ones. Now alike photos from Kiev city.

    OMG Russian occupation of Kiev turned the city back for almost 50 years behind the west when it comes to development and modernisation :(

    The funny thing is that, unlike the WWII pictures from St. Petersburg, the contrast is not that evident. I mean, most of architecture is intact, only the cars and the trams are different.

    People should remember that Ukrainians were considered the Red Necks and White Trash of Soviet Union.

      People should also remember how kind were russian overlords once they took over Ukraine. I’m talking about the great famine in 30’s, when few million people starved to death, thaks to forced collectivisation.

      Especially ironic is that it happend in Ukraine, which has always been extremely rich in crops, as almost half of corps in russian market were imported from Ukraine.
