Graffiti #9: Some Of The Most Famous Graffiti In Ukraine

Sure, it's not graffiti on the Berlin Wall or a Bansky, but the Orange Revolution graffiti in Kiev is some of the most famous in Ukraine. These pillars were written on during demonstrations in Independence Square following the Presidential elections in 2004 and were encased in plexiglas to preserve the art.

Here is a close up of the graffiti of Viktor Yushchenko who won the Presidential election.  If you are unfamiliar with Ukrainian politics, you may remember him as the politician that was poisoned with dioxin.

Although I can't make out exactly what it says here, the orange color is very appropriate.  

Although it is mostly in Cyrillic there was some English on the pillars including this "Together Victory."
