White swan over Maidan…
Today on Maidan.
Recently, Ukraine has had several symbolic situations with birds. Doves, seagulls, crows…
Today on Maidan we were stunned: very low, almost over the roof of the burnt House of Trade Unions… a swan flew by!!! A white swan! It was flying peacefully, leisurely… It was at home.
Maidan stood still.
People couldn’t believe their eyes! When has this ever happened?
In the centre of Kyiv, over the smoked Maidan, through a drizzling rain… the swan was flying!
