“Dear Mayor!!! The building is falling!!! Save us!!!”
Downtown Kyiv, Ukraine, July 2006
By Maidan International's New Project for Democracy

This desperate attempt by residents to draw attention of Leonid Chernovetsky, the Ukrainian capital's new mayor, to their building's condition has been photographed by Maidan International's New Project for Democracy – whose mission “is to inform about the state of democracy, promote freedom, market open society, provide context for news from the region to global audiences, and contribute to peace in UKRAINE, BELARUS, MOLDOVA, as well as in other areas of the world such as Central Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, the Middle East, and Central Asia.”
