More Lenins Down in Ukraine

by Andrew Stuttaford

Radio Free Europe reports:

Authorities in the western Ukrainian town of Berdichev say a two-meter high statue to the founder of the Soviet Union Vladimir Lenin has been “completely destroyed….”

Another statue of Lenin was reported down in the town of Andreevo-Ivanovka, also in the Odesa region, but officials said the statue simply “fell over” and broke into two pieces.

Can happen, I guess.
