The New Year celebration in Kyiv was filmed with a bird’s eye view. A drone recorded video footage that was edited and released jointly by Radio Liberty and Dronarium company.
The audience can see how Kyivites and guests of the city celebrated the New Year in the downtown city, at Sofiyska and Mykhailivska squares.
Previously, New Year’s festivities in Kyiv were usually held at the Maidan Nezalezhnosti Square. However, in 2015, the local authorities took into account tragic events of the Euromaidan that took place at the Maidan Nezalezhnosti in late 2013 and early 2014; for that and other reasons, they decided to hold the official part of the festivities at the Sofiyska Square.
