KIEV, February 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The situation at the railway station in Kiev is calm. Shopping malls, drugstores, cafes and restaurants were open, an Itar-Tass correspondent reported on Monday.
Almost all the fashion stores in the large ‘Ukraine’ shopping mall were open. However, there were no customers there as well as in footwear and perfume stores.
People were actively discussing political developments, but when somebody unknown approached, they became silent.
