A new day here in Kiev. There is so much to see around the city and many monuments to visit.Ukraine have a rich history that can be remembered and learned about by visiting monuments in Kiev. Luckily I have brought some good shoes as this time like always it is a lot of walking. First stop for the day is The Monument of Eternal Glory at the Grave of the Unknown Soldier. As a smart Ukrainian told me: Remember, do not forget.
From this monument it is only a short walk to Monument to the millions of victims of the Great Famine that lasted from 1932-1933

Nothing to see here, all is safe!
Mother Motherland, the size is huge.
Close to the monument it is a exhibit of tanks and other military items.
Everything is okay mom.

A powerful message from these statues.
This monument is a memorial of the Great Patriotic War, world war II. The statue is 62 meters high and weighs about 450 ton, impressive.
For me these made the greatest impact, a memorial for what happened just one year ago.
At Maidan, remembering Euromaidan.
No fancy state made memorial, just a memorial by the people for the people.
Helmets, home made shields and other items used in the protests.
At Maidan photos from the front line is displayed.

Jesus Ukrainian brother, good having him around.
Life seems normal in the streets of Kiev. Seeing all this monuments tells me the story of Ukraine.
Remember, do not forget.
