Kitten Train of Friendship: Ukraine

A train carriage adorned with kittens and a chequered background is due to make its maiden voyage between the Ukrainian city of Lviv in the west and Odessa in the south-east as a gesture of friendship. The venture has been put together by activists in the west who are trying to dispel rumours about anti-Russian neo-Nazi groups that have been circulating in the east, ZIK TV in Lviv reports. On the outside, the carriage has kittens, a patterned background, and a message saying “keep calm”. Inside, the carriage is furnished with teddy bears, books and cushions donated by the public. The Public Sector of the Lviv Maydan, a pro- EU group in the west, says it hopes the train will promote commonly-shared values such as “cosiness, calm and the long-forgotten feeling of confidence in what is going to happen tomorrow”, according to their Facebook page.
