Festival of fire

About this time of the year, right across Ukraine we enter the season of the elements, celebrated by a four week Festival of Fire.

The essential idea of the Festival of Fire is to set fire to just about anything then bugger off and leave it to burn out of control with no regard for wildlife or road users.

I have asked why this done and the usual answer accompanied with a shrug of the shoulders is to tidy up.
