The Chronicles of Lenin-falls in Ukraine: Odesa Oblast

More

ImageSeveral Lenin monuments were damaged in Odesa oblast this weekend.

A monument to Lenin was destroyed on Saturday morning in the town of Savran.  Another one was torn down in the town of Liubashovka.  The following morning, a bust of Lenin was destroyed in Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi.

On Sunday, [in the Museum of totalitarian sculpture] in Odesa’s Lenin Komsomol park, one Lenin monument was covered with red paint and another decapitated.  

“This is vandalism. They could have taken down and damaged all thirty-seven monuments of Odesa oblast, having no idea what communists did for the region,” said the leader of the local Communist organization.
