What do Kyiv residents think about Victory Day. 9 May 2016

What do Kyiv residents think about Victory Day. 9 May 2016

A few years ago, the Victory Day parade would have been much more pompous and with military hardware. However, this year celebrations in Ukraine on May 9 are much simpler. For the second year, Ukrainians celebrate also a Remembrance day on May 8, as well as the Day of Liberation from Nazism on May 9. A couple hundred people came to the central street to honor those that fought against Nazi Germany 71 years ago. We asked people on Maidan square whose victory they were celebrating.
