KIEV, June 4. /TASS/. A monument to Felix Dzerzhinsky, the founder of the Bolshevik secret police, was brought down by radicals of the Right Sector, a Ukrainian extremist organization outlawed in Russia, in the settlement of Katerinovka in the Rovno region in western Ukraine, the UNN news agency reported on Thursday.
Ukraine launched a war on Soviet-era monuments in late 2013 after the monument to Lenin was destroyed in central Kiev. According to the Ukrainian Institute of Memory, more than 300 Lenin statues and about 100 monuments to other Soviet leaders have been demolished across Ukraine ever since.
Currently, monuments are being demolished under a package of the so-called decommunization laws Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko signed on May 15, which outlaw Soviet symbols, condemns the Communist regime, opens access to the archives of Soviet security services and recognizes Ukraine’s Insurgent Army (UPA) that fought against Soviet troops during WWII as "fighters for the country's independence.".
