I chose a couple of cards for tonight's update, first of which is this one above, from the Ukrainian capital. It depicts Maidan Nezalezhnosti (literylly Independence Square), the main square of Kyiv. The square has been known under many different names, but often it is called simply Maidan.The square has changed numerous names throughout the past: Khreshchatyk Square (Kreshchatitskaya ploshchad), Council (Parliament) Square (Dumskaya ploshchad), Soviet Square (Sovetskaya ploshchad),  Kalinin Square (Ploshchad Kalinina), then again Council (Parliament) Square (Dumska ploshcha), and backt to Kalinin Square (Ploshchad Kalinina), Square of the October Revolution (Ploshchad Oktyabrskoi Revolutsyi) and finally Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti). Thanks a lot, Helga!
