February 16, 2002 in Moscow, on the Kiev Bridge, the largest mass kiss of all kisses will take place: 2002 couples will kiss. This action will be devoted to St. Valentine’s Day, despite the fact that the event will take place two days after the holiday. In addition to the kiss itself, many other competitions will be carried out on the bridge, whose winners will receive prizes from the event's sponsors.
