Protesters Topple Huge Lenin Statue in Eastern Ukraine

Thousands of pro-Ukrainian demonstrators helped topple a massive monument to former Soviet Union leader Vladimir Lenin on Sunday. In a strange twist, the protesters were actually just following orders. According to the website LeninStatues.ru, around 168 Lenin monuments have been destroyed in Ukraine all ready. The first one fell last December.

In a scene reminiscent of the Euromaidan Revolution last winter, protesters surrounded the massive statue at Kharkiv’s Freedom Square and cheered in support as a man with an angle grinder sawed off one of Lenin’s legs. Then the crowd wrenched the ex-head of state’s likeness to the ground with ropes.

Here's where it get's strange...



Just moments before Lenin fell, Kharkiv Regional Governor Ihor Baluta reportedly signed an order for the statue’s removal in what was likely a last-minute face-saving move.

Demonstrators earlier were threatened with five years in prison for attempting to tear down the monument, according to a post on the Interior Ministry’s website, which was later deleted.



A statue can make a huge statement when erected in the right place. On rare occasion, it can make an even bigger statement when its torn down.


“Lenin? Let him fall,” the interior minister, Arsen Avakov, wrote. “As long as people aren’t hurt. As long as this bloody communist idol does not take more victims with it when it goes.”

I am not aquatinted with the geopolitical dynamics of Ukraine and Russia. I am however, very knowledgable about the Jewish takeover of Russia. Lenin was a Jewish snake, and five out of the six Russian Oligarchs, currently, are Jewish. You figure it out.

I don't know whether to reply with a serious rebuttal, or a snarky one. Text is notoriously hard to discern social cues on.
