Up until everything started going batshit crazy in Ukraine, my wife and I had plans to fly into Warsaw this summer and then drive to Lviv to try and locate some long-lost relatives. That doesn’t seem like a good idea right now. With travel advisories in place (including from the Canadian government), it’s probably best to stay away from Kyiv for the moment.
Depeche Mode is onside with that. They were scheduled to perform in Kyiv on Wednesday night (February 26) but given that no one is really sure who’s running the country, they’ve decided to cancel. From their website:
The band’s thoughts are with the Ukrainians during this challenging period and they sincerely look forward to the next time they can perform for the fans in Kiev and Ukraine.
Can’t say I blame them.
