ODESSA, January 2. /TASS/. Unknown attackers have brought down a monument to Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin in the Odessa Region, in southern Ukraine, the Odessa Media news agency reported on Friday.
The statue broke into pieces when it was thrown off its pedestal in the village of Krasnye Okna.
The Lenin monuments have been earlier fallen victims in the city of Odessa, and also neighboring Bolgrad, Berezovka and the village of Kirnichki.
The so-called war against monuments began in Ukraine in late 2013 when a massive Lenin statue was destroyed in downtown Kiev.
According to Ukraine’s Memory Institute, around 300 monuments to Lenin and 70 monuments to other Soviet-era public figures have been pulled down across the country.
