The Kiev 35A (Киев-35A) is a 35mm fixed-lens compact camera made in the Ukraine by Arsenal between 1985 and 1991. An export version was also known as the Exxell Automatik. It is a copy of the Minox 35 EL. It has aperture priority automatic exposure controlling the shutter from 4s - 1/500s, and a Korsar 35mm/f2.8 lens.
The 35A was succeeded by a 35AM; this was only made in very small quantities.
