the current city center of Khreshchatyk and Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) were not the obvious choices. Some of the early, ultimately not materialised, ideas included a part of Pechersk (Pechersk, Kiev), Lypky, European Square (European Square, Kiev) and Mykhailivska Square. The plans of building massive monuments (of Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin) where also abandoned; due to lack of money (in the 1930s-1950s) and because of Kiev's hilly landscape. Experiencing rapid population growth between the 1970s and the mid-1990s, the city has continued its consistent growth after the turn of the millennium. As a result, Kiev's central districts provide a dotted contrast of new, modern buildings amongst the pale yellows, blues and greys of older apartments. Urban sprawl has gradually reduced, while population densities of suburbs has increased. The most expensive properties are located in the Pechersk, and Khreshchatyk areas. It is also prestigious to own a property in newly constructed buildings in the Kharkivskyi Raion (Kharkivskyi neighborhood, Kiev) or Obolon (Obolon Raion) along the Dnieper. thumb right A public concert held on Maidan Nezalezhnosti (File:Esc 2005 concert on maidan.jpg) during Kiev's 2005 Eurovision Song Contest Buildings * Uspensky Cathedral (Uspensky Cathedral (Ukraine)) in Kharkiv, Ukraine is completed. * The Scott Monument in Edinburgh, Scotland is completed.

After that moment, although branded "enemy of the people", Rakovsky was still occasionally allowed to speak in public (notably, together with Kamenev and Karl Radek, to the Moscow Komsomol), and continued to criticize Stalin's leadership as "bureaucratic socialism" (''see Bureaucratic collectivism'') and "social fascism (Social fascism theory)".

Fagan, ''Opposition and Exile''; Tănase, "The Renegade Istrati" Podgorny's position was constantly threatened by Brezhnev and his allies. In an article in ''Ekonomicheskaya Gazeta'' from February 1965, the newspaper criticised the Kharkiv Party organisation which Podgorny had previously headed, but also its management of the economy. By indirectly criticising Podgorny, the article raised doubts about his qualifications as a leading member of the Soviet leadership. Podgorny launched a counterattack in his 1965 speech in Baku, Azerbaijani Soviet Socialist Republic, were he criticised the Soviet leadership's heavy industrial policy (heavy industry). This, as it turned out, would be a move he would regret for life. Instead of offending just Brezhnev and Shelepin, he offended the whole conservative wing of the leadership. To make matters even worse for Podgorny, Mikhail Suslov, who had kept outside of the conflict, sided with Brezhnev, and called his views "revisionist". Later in 1965, Podgorny lost his seat in the Secretariat (Secretariat of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union), and on 9 December 1965 he replaced Mikoyan as Chairman (List of heads of state of the Soviet Union) of the Presidium (Presidium of the Supreme Soviet) of the Supreme Soviet (Supreme Soviet of the Soviet Union).
