AMBASSADOR'S BLOG - REMEMBRANCE DAY IN KYIV

Kyiv
14.11.10




The British and Canadian embassies in Kyiv organised a short ceremony at the Park of Glory on 11 November to mark Remembrance Day.  There was a good turnout. The ceremony, which included prayers, poems, the Act of Remembrance, the Last Post, a two minute silence and the laying of wreaths, took place under a clear blue sky.  One or two people asked for a copy of my opening comments; you can find the text here.  Some pictures are below.
