KIEV, February 23, (ITAR-TASS) - Communists have dismantled a statue of Lenin taking it to a museum in Dneprodzherzhinsk, a city in the major industrial Dnepropetrovsk region in the south-eastern part of Ukraine, local media outlets report.
This was made after several radically minded young people spray painted the monument on Saturday afternoon. All in all, more than 10 monuments to the leader of the 1917 revolution have been pulled down or destroyed in several cities of Ukraine. Statues to Lenin have been repeatedly coming under attack by radicals since December 8, when a statue of Lenin was toppled and destroyed with sledge hammers in Kiev. This has triggered new similar incidents across the country.
