Weather -
A beautiful morning in Kiev. About 12 now. Blue sky, sunshine. High maybe near 20.

But expect muted celebrations in Ukraine.

In Moscow for Putin it is an equivalent of a nationalistic election rally.

Report says about 25000 police and others on patrol.

Kiev to me seemed very quiet. No problems. To be honest, like a family day.
Odesa - a few minor problems - see post above.

The Odesa police detained 14 violators of order
.on May, 9, 2016 - 17: 03 .Odesa 14 violators of public peace to the departments of police, foremost those that marked Victory Day with a soviet symbolics and St George ribbons.
About it reports "Укрінформ".
Most violators are delivered from a municipal park the name of Taras Shevchenko, where today Odesa laid flowers to the monument to the Unknown sailor...

I've been through Shevchenko park many many times, but never noticed that the monument there was to a sailor! You learn something every day.
In Kiev on the metro I saw a youngish man with a poppy and an Ukrainian " lenta".. ribbon - attached to it ) A nice touch.

...“Since times of Hitler and Stalin unprecedented violation of international law takes place in the East of Europe. Predatory and voracious empire ignores state borders and tries to expand its so-called living space. Ukraine resists again. The only difference is that the enemy came from the East,” the President said....

I spent some time walking around Kiev centre today.
In Podol - very quiet really. I went for a pizza with friends. Large place, but only about 5 other people there.
Then went for a walk along the renovated Sea Port front at Pochtova Plocha.
Quite nice there now. Many people simply going for a walk with young children. Many young couples. Some people taking a boat cruise.
A few - but not many - people on Trukhanov ostrov. Sunbathing. Water too cold to swim at the moment. Maybe June.
But a warm day today. Especially in the strong sunshine.
Then I walked up, and then down to Maidan. More people there. Some " pop" bands playing. Again - young families going for a walk. Kreshatik is closed.
I also saw perhaps 30 soldiers - Aidar? Congregating next to the Kozakiy Hotel. Right on Maidan - a block from OBriens.
Metro. Moderately busy. A lot of people getting on and off at Arsenalna - going to the Eternal Flame, I presume, and Rodina Mat war memorials.
I assume.

....The memorable date was established by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on April 9, 2015, with the law On perpetuation of the victory over Nazism in the World War II of 1939-1945 voted for within the package of decommunisation laws.
Now, May 9 is celebrated as the Day of Victory over Nazism in World War II, instead of the established Soviet-era Day of Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945...

Concert in the evening on Maidan. Brass band, I understand. Heard one yesterday also.
Me - planning to go to the centre of Kiev around midday. Weather beautiful at the moment. 10 am.

From his website. I could run and see him in Pechersk, but - I won't.
I think Admin was there yesterday. - Lavra area.
Expect photos on his website later. No militaristic jingoism in Kiev. Unlike Moscow.

Actually we were there before the speaking event took place, which I wasn't aware it was going to occur. it was setup (stage) in same property as the popular statue holding up the sword and shield, which I was disappointed that it's still showing the hammer and sickle on the shield.

...The North Korean leadership was displeased with their reports highlighting aspects of life in the capital.

Ok. Not about Ukraine.
But North Korea - it's control - mega control of the press and any foreigners. The direction KGB Putin is taking Russia. " Foreign agents" ..
And why Ukraine is fighting not to become a totalitarian state under Russia's dictator.

Eurovision Song Contest. Regarded as a joke in England, many other countries.
In Ukraine, Russia, taken very seriously. But I don't understand why.
Remember - Tatar song from Ukraine. It will be interesting to see how much support it gets.
As for Stockholm - pleasant city, but for me - basically islands in the sea. Not easy to walk around!
