Visitors to Kyiv have hailed the UEFA EURO 2012-themed arrangements of around 300,000 flowers on the hillsides of Spivoche Pole on the banks of the Dnieper river.
The hillsides of Spivoche Pole on the banks of the Dnieper river in Kyiv are known for their large-scale flower arrangements and right now UEFA EURO 2012 provides the theme.
In a display that began on 8 June and runs until 5 August, compositions made up of 350,000 plants provide a stunning backdrop in the park. On public holidays and matchdays it is the setting for concerts and workshops of modelling and floral design, including competitions.
The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/.
The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow.
Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
