A tiny update (and a response to Sasha, sort of):
Instead of sending the flag photo to CNN, I've sent the woman-walking-through-garbage one to Gazeta po-Kievski. Who knows, maybe they'll come over and do a story, and then the assholes will show up and clean the mess.
I feel somewhat idiotic, like a babushka, writing letters to newspapers and all, but I really want something to be done about it!
The neighbor, by the way, said that maybe they should write to Yushchenko, and I thought it was so childish of her to hope he would help in such a (seemingly) trivial matter.
