Olevsk ( NW Ukraine ):
Great to hear from you again ftw! Hope you are safe?
Oh thank you, I'm pretty safe. Guess even more than safe - I'm a risk myself, a risk to public order. Particularly on Friday nights.
Good to know that we have rowdy friends in Kiev
Really glad to hear that you are safe ftw. Please keep Putin at bay, because your mural shots are the absolute best on this thread!
An oldie but I just fo9und this thread.
Getting that time of year. Festival in a couple of weeks.

Kamenets-Podol'skiy ( one of my fav. places in W UA ):
Eastern Europe has always enjoyed great graphic artists. Partly because they never dropped academic standards. Super.
I took these today on a nice Spring ride. These are in Silverton, Oregon.
Lenin and Stalin portraits on an old water tower in Novgorod-Severskiy ( N Ukraine ):
The strategic nuclear MRBM division's canteen at the partly-disused Byelokorovichi missile operating base in N Ukraine, lavishly decorated in mural mosaїcs early nineteen-eighties' ( times of the USSR strategic missile corps full blossom and bottomless funding ) Soviet style:
Some were not just funny but real time capsule-like, e. g. this СЛАВА КПСС! ( GLORY TO THE CPSU! - the Communist Party of the Soviet Union ) - very few of these once-omnipresent propaganda slogans have survived the past two decades:
Some of the mosaїcs had never been completed before the troops vacated the base - only the charcoal scatches over the plaster remained, like ghosts of those departed:
Now you can only imagine how lively it had been during the Soviet nuclear missile heyday of the nineteen-seventies and eighties.
Art in a military installation.
Must be civilization.
