The 17th annual Kyiv Lions Club Burns Night, in honor of Scottish poet Robert Burns, raised more than $120,000 for charity – a record for the event, says organizer Stuart McKenzie of Pulse marketing and communications firm.

The more than 500 guests at Burns Night enjoyed plentiful drink, food and entertainment – including performances by Kamaliya and Tina Karol – at the March 31 event.

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 The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
