The Most Famous Little Car in Ukraine (now in Vienna). Exiled Automaidan activist Sergey Koba is taking the fight around Europe. His unmissable bright orange souped up VW Golf – complete with a roof top bank of flashing lights - has become a symbol of the movement. Koba left Ukraine at the end of January after several high-profile run ins with police, first to Poland. Last week he led a 50 car, 300 person picket of the Ukraine consulate in Vienna (pictured outside the Hofburg Palce, above). At the weekend he was involved in a symbolic Automaidaner rally in Munich. Yesterday he posted pictures stood beside the grave of controversial Ukraine nationalist Stephan Bandera, murdered by the KGB in 1959, and buried at the Waldfriedhof cemetery.
