Kiev seems to be a city with many beautiful facades. It is hard to believe that a civil war is going on when watching these tranquil streets. It is definately worth visiting when it gets calmer.

1. We have no civil war. You repeat the lie of Russian propaganda. We're at war with the Russians (from Russia) and the pro-Russian collaborators (~8-10% of the population of Ukraine).
2. The war goes on the eastern border of Ukraine (~700-800 km from Kyiv). Life in Kyiv is absolutely secure.

P.S. Ukraine takes the first steps in the information war. Russia has already created a legion of trolls and the Russian propaganda machine is running at full speed. 'Information war is now the main type of war',- says the Kremlin’s chief propagandist Dmitry Kiselyov. And Putin’s Russia is very good at it, having combined the dirtiest mechanisms for brainwashing.
