  1. New metro stations were opened in Kiev but bus routes were not rerouted to take advantage of them, so there is still no time gain for the thousands of commuters who live far from the center. That’s why I love these bureaucratic states!

  2. Perhaps this was not created to transport people, but rather to act as a giant trumpet to herald the apocalypse.

    Google “strange sounds Kiev” to see all the fuss.
