Description

Originally, the Friendship Arch was supposed to be a gesture of unity between Ukraine and its Soviet overlords. Crafted of titanium and stretching 50 m (164 ft), it sits on a viewing platform over the Dnieper River with panoramas.Ironically, less than a decade after the memorial was built after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the uneasy agreement between the two countries ended. The memorial arches over a bronze bust of Russian and Ukrainian staff holding up a unifying banner by sculptor Aleksandr Skoblikov.
