Wikipedia

The Verkhovna Rada building (Ukrainian: Будинок Верховної Ради) is located in the center of Kiev, the Pechersk Raion. The building is located at the Constitution Square. It is the place where the Ukrainian parliament (Verkhovna Rada) meets for all regular and ceremonial sessions. The building was erected between 1936–38 to a design by Volodymyr Zabolotny (Vladimir Zabolotny) in the neo-classical Ukrainian architectural style of the Stalin era. Zabolotny was awarded the State Prize of Soviet Union for that project in 1940 and appointed the chief architect of the city.

UA Parliament



Introduction

The "Verkhovna Rada" is a typical example of neoclassical Soviet architecture from the Stalin-era. Home to a unicameral parliament, it is designed in a rectangular symmetric form with an octagonal session hall, spanned by a dome made from glass and metal that illuminates the structure at night. A gilded Soviet star from the top of the building was recently cut off in a symbolic act, while the Ukrainian flag was flying at half-mast in mourning of the dead of the Euromaidan-crisis.
