  October celebrities

7 November of 1971. Kiev celebrated the holiday of October Revolution. Every year parades were held with many people, flags, songs, music. But as I know from stories of people who took a part in this, all celebrations were under pressure and directors on factories had instructions to make employees to go to parades. They didn’t have a choice or they could get a punishments, but from the other hand they had lots of fun after parades, because this day was a day off.
