Just before curfew (usually at 2200 hrs) you see cars and people speeding home through a pitch dark city.


Only with a special permit are you allowed to be outside during the curfew. In Western Ukraine the curfew regime is much more relaxed than in Eastern Ukraine. In Zaporizhya, for example, the curfew is accompanied by a complete black out. In a perverse type of way, I actually enjoy the quiet and pitch dark city after curfew. I calm down and sleep much better.
