Can this website using Google Maps be saved offline?

Kyiv Murals (see link) is a great resource for finding the murals of Kyiv. However I do not have a smartphone and only a wifi tablet. Is it possible to save the locations and accompanying photo offline through some googlefu? [more inside]

3 days in Kiev and 3 in Chernobyl - any suggestions?

We'll be visiting Kiev and Chernobyl (here with a guided tour) the next week. Already bought Lonely Planet and will check Atlas Obscura, Tripadvisor. But I'm a bit sceptical with travel advice coming from these sources - I'd rather have a mefite telling me what to do and what to avoid. [more inside]

Using PayPal to send money to Ukraine

I bought a $70 camera located in Ukraine on Ebay; the listing showed that you could pay with PayPal. PayPal says people in Ukraine can't receive payments from PayPal. I was relying on the protection of PayPal to make sure I actually get the camera (or my money back). Is there some safe way to send money to Ukraine that doesn't reveal my payment information & gives me protection if I don't receive the item?

How should I engage with my partner's strong Russian nationalism?

My partner is Russian and fairly nationalistic about it. He and I (and sometimes some of our mutual friends) occasionally tangle over statements he makes, increasingly now with the situation in Ukraine. I'm not entirely sure of the best way to reduce these conflicts, if I even should, and I would be super thankful for any advice. [more inside]

Ukrainian Nazi Mystery Photo - Please help identify this photo!

A friend of mine purchased a random box of photos from a Brooklyn yard sale over the weekend. Deep within the collection were several photos depicting life during and immediately after WWII. Based on the photos we have been able to piece together that they most likely belonged to a member of the 14th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (1st Galician). [more inside]

I want my European vacation more brutal!

My husband and I love pictures of old modern and brutalist weird architecture in Eastern Europe. We'd love to see it. But travel agents and tours focus on blue waters and quaint villages. Is there a "show me the concrete weirdness" travel option I'm missing for two people who don't like the traditional postcards, but both almost failed college Russian? [more inside]

How do I buy a Ukranian folk artist's print - Maria Primachenko?

I fell in love this week with Maria Primachenko who is just so so good, like staring at the pictures on my screen in wonder and delight, and I badly want a full-size or at least reasonably large print to frame - I love them all, so any of her works would do. All I can find are some dubious quality replicas at Wahooart, but I'll settle for postcards at this point. I can't find any of the books or albums about her on my usual book source searches either. Any ideas?

I am teaching a documentary class in Kiev at the end of the month. Students will work together to create several projects around a single issue.

What does this awesome 105-year-old Armenian-language Austro-Hungarian postcard say?

I just bought a postcard written in what looks like Armenian sent from what is now Lviv to what is now Chernivtsi (in what is now Ukraine), sometime between 1905 and (I'm guessing from the stamp) the end of the First World War/Austrian rule of Galicia. What does it say? [more inside]
