Ukraine could improve it's historical places for English-speaking tourists by incorporating QRC codes by each monument which then directs the user to the respective Wikipedia site.

Nice monument to the patron saints of the city. Princess Olga in the middle. The 2 guys on the right are the ones to create the alphabet for the Russian/Ukrainian language. Saint Andrew is on the left looking like he's ordering a taxi

Very nice statue of very strong woman. If you know the history and you know who is this, you will diffenetly enjoy the view on this monument. The location is great, if you are visiting Kiev you will pass by anyway.

I worked about 200 metres from this statue for many years and passed it every day on the way to work. Looks great in the dark, with the appropriate lighting to enhance it. But in the daylight it looks slightly cheap and tacky. You cannot...More

The three people depicted here all played an important role in the history of what became Ukraine and also the development of Christianity. Actually it looks better at night when it is floodlit while the other buildings are muted.
