Tent City Recreated in Kiev

A music contest this summer in Kiev will be the site of a tent city for the youth of Belarus and foreign nationals:

A private company is inviting the guests of the Eurovision-2005 song contest, to be held in Kiev this summer, to sleep in the same military tents that were used by supporters of the Ukrainian opposition during the days of the so-called Orange Revolution. The organizing committee is planning to decorate the camping area with authentic revolutionary banners and other memorabilia, Interfax reported Tuesday.

The design of the camping area is aimed to show guests what the Orange Revolution in Ukraine was about, Boichuk said.

The Ukrainian representative at the Eurovision contest this year is a group called Grindzholy, the performers of the unofficial anthem of the Orange Revolution.

The hosts of the show in Kiev will be Ukrainian singer Ruslana, Eurovision-2004 winner, and boxer Vladimir Klichko, the Kievtourist Web site reports.
