City officials take away bouquets brought in by people
The pedestal for the hero city of Kyiv at the Unknown Soldier memorial in Moscow's Alexandrovski Garden remains without traditional flower bouquets.
Facebook users already uploaded the picture showing their resentment towards Moscow officials. Some people brought flowers and laid them near the Kyiv monument, though in a while bouquets disappeared.
Ukraine, Internet users claim, is supposed to be punished in this manner, since the country's official foreign policy does not correspond with Kremlin's interests.
On the contrary, the Odesa pedestal is covered with flowers and banners with Soviet symbols, supposedly due to the recent bloodshed anniversary.
