Sasha Groshevoy has been an avid supporter of Place magazine. Stationed in Ukraine, he has also been putting in loads of work. Putting out multiple video parts in 2020.
The last video he put out was filmed in 7days but this time Sasha has bumped up the time limit to 14 days. Unfortunately, two weeks in Odessa is unlike 2 weeks in any other European city. We have heard it described as the unfriendliest skate city on this side of the Atlantic ocean. Kick-outs are the rule, not the exception and with plenty of good spots, it can look like a skater’s wet dream but quickly turn into your worst nightmare.
With that said the result speaks for itself, Sasha & his filmer Dima Demchenkopulled a rabbit out of a hat with this one. And made us wonder if it is worth visiting Odessa all the same.
The Ukrainien Expedition was initiated by Sergej Vutuc and filmed in Kiev, Odessa, Slavutych and Chernobyl. Follow Igor Fardin, David Grigoryan, Valeri Rosomako, Tomaž Šantl, Tjark Thielker & Sergej skating spots you have never seen before.
Underlined with the right song choice, this documentary is a lovely piece of work and you can almost imagine being there yourself. Good one, boys! It’s always worth visiting our eastern neighbors.
