Kyiv’s Stadium Voskhod, on the city’s outskirts, hosted semifinal and final Kiev Cricket League games on July 13-15. Cricket is not a very popular sport in Ukraine, though it has many passionate fans among expatriate enthusiasts, including Mohammad Zahoor, ISTIL Group chairman and Kyiv Post publisher. Dr. Zahoor was among high guests present at the tournament won by team Friends XI.


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.
