Chocolate Putins are flying off the shelves in Ukraine

When revolution gripped Ukraine at the beginning of the year, Lviv, in the country's west, was at the centre of events.

Activists set up barricades in the city and travelled to Kiev, where they helped oust the former president, Viktor Yanukovych.

Now the situation has stabilized and its residents are again enjoying the charms of this Middle European city.

But as David Stern has found out, on the eve of Ukraine's presidential elections, the people of Lviv are still very much engaged in the country's politics - albeit in their own special way.
