KIEV, February 22, 5:27 /ITAR-TASS/. A monument to Vladimir Lenin, the leader of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution in Russia, was taken down in Dnepropetrovsk, one of the biggest cities in Ukraine. Local media reports the monument was pulled down from its pedestal which stands on the city’s square bearing Lenin’s name.
Vandals also pulled down Lenin’s monument in Chernigov despite clashes with Communist Party supporters who tried to save the monument.
In the past 24 hours, vandal attempts to destroy monuments to Vladimir Lenin in other Ukrainian cities, including Brovary, Zhitomir, Poltava and Priluki (the Chernigov region).
The first monument to Lenin was destroyed in Kiev on December 8 last year when radical protesters crushed it with sledgehammers. Such incidents have become regular in all parts of Ukraine since then.
