11:02 09 November Kyiv, Ukraine

A petition against the installation of a New Year tree on the website of the City Council collected the required number of signatures in less than a day.

The author of the petition, Natalya Popovich, considers it inappropriate to spend money on the purchase, installation, maintenance and dismantling of a New Year tree in Kyiv. More than six thousand Kyivans agreed with Natalia.
“It is more appropriate to spend the allocated funds on helping the Armed Forces of Ukraine or the Higher Professional Education,” Natalya Popovich noted.
Mayor Vitali Klitschko said that traditional mass celebrations will not be held before the New Year, but they do not plan to completely abandon the celebration of winter holidays. The format is still being discussed, including the possibility of installing a Christmas tree in the city center.
