KYIV: Kommunyaki
Nov. 7, 2006

A Communist rally next to Lenin's monument on Shevchenko Boulevard, across the street from my house. I ran out for 20 minutes, just couldn't resist it. Not too many of them and most are quite old. They didn't stop the traffic because of the rally, so the crowd was split in two; also, construction work didn't stop in the Kashtan building on the corner of Khreshchatyk, where part of the crowd stood. Lots of journalists. The riot police reminded me of Star Wars.
