Viatrovych noted that the fate of these monuments is very different.
“Most of them – this is the usual plaster figures that do not represent neither material nor historical value, was done on a single Canon. They destroyed, of course. Those that represent a material value, for example, bronze could be melted. A portion is retained for the Museum. Hopefully at the end of this year, we will be able to establish such a Museum in Kiev, on the territory of the ENEA. It will be a Museum monumentalne Soviet propaganda. This fall we will announce it”, he said.
Earlier Vladimir vyatrovich said that the renaming of settlements and streets in Ukraine will help to create a barrier to the Kremlin’s anti-Ukrainian actions in Ukraine.
