Military Cemetery In Kiev

Near Babi Yar is an interesting cemetery devoted to military veterans. The dead span the Soviet era up to present day, including veterans lost during the recent Euromadian uprising in 2013-14.

Resting, in all their glory.

Plenty of elaborate details, busts to tanks.

The living come regularly to pay respects and refresh flowers. Benches that double as little gardening boxes dot the cemetery.

Final chance to show one's (mettle) medals.

Graves are also multi-generational.

Memorials to recent fallen soldiers.
This veteran's whole family is represented.
