A Trip To Kyiv Road

This article on the BBC is entitled Ukraine War: Road Outside Russian Embassy Renamed ‘Kyiv Road’.

This is the sub-heading.


Under a picture of a guy holding the new Kyiv Road sign, there are these three paragraphs.

The new address will cover a stretch of Bayswater Road that is only a short distance from the Russian embassy.

It comes after protest group Led by Donkeys turned the same street blue and yellow on Thursday.

The Kyiv Road sign will be installed on Friday afternoon by Westminster City Council.

I just had to go and take a few pictures before the Russians, some vandals or some political sympathisers cover it in paint.


  1. The road had been painted blue and yellow by pro-Ukraine protestors a couple of days ago.
  2. There were two groups of protestors; Ukrainians and Russians opposed to Putin.
  3. The Ukrainian protestors have Ukrainian flags.
  4. The anti-Putin protestors have white-blue-white flags, which are the Russian flag, with the red replaced by white.

It was all very light-hearted and the main job of the Police was to gently urge protestors out of the way of traffic.

    • I can confirm that, as I walked up from the Royal Garden Hotel.

      What surprised me was that a couple of mansions appear to be semi-derelict.

      I also noticed that the Russian Ambassadors residence was at number thirteen. Is that unlucky?

  4. Apparently Sadiq, your ‘Troll from Tooting’ wanted to rename Kensington PG as Zelensky Avenue.
    As for semi derelict properties, surely they are just redevelopment opportunities for the super-rich who still have to pay the Crown Estate those eye watering ground rents.
