or this ...
meetings (first in a hall, then in park)...
Members of the Kiev collector's
club meet quite religiously most Sunday mornings ... usually in a park but once a month they have a reunion ("sljet") in a hall.
Club members and visitors start assembling
as early as seven am and by lunch time manage to examine
everything from orders, medals, coins, badges and pins
to the occasional uniform, piece of porcelain or hand-engraved
tusk of a walrus. The club is frequented by a few foreigners
and the preferred currency is still USD. In terms of Awards
few collectors are honest but several dealers come
regularly with fakes waiting for well-to-do foreigners
who are known to be quite capable to buy Soviet memorabilia,
or fakes, for outrageous prices. The President Victor Yushchenko is also a collector and sometimes comes for a walk about ... handing out a signature here and there ... flanked by his security!
The Club's venues are not listed in the "Lonely Planet"
but if in Kiev - definitely try to pay a visit!
