Victory Day! May 9th is Victory/Memorial Day here in Ukraine. The former Soviet Union countries celebrate the WWII victory over Nazi Germany. At 10am there was a parade, we walked in it from the center square to a nearby park and there were people carrying flags and a band playing music and the veterans of various wars walked as well. We visited two monuments in the park and many people laid flowers down, my group decided to seek out the veterans and present our flowers to them. I have my flowers to an older woman veteran because I thought that was awesome to see a woman, she was the only one I saw too. Here are pictures from the morning.
