On May 17, Oleg Radik, adviser to the head of the regional military administration (OVA) of the region, announced the demolition of two more Soviet sculptures.

In Ukraine, since 2015, a policy of decommunization has been carried out within the framework of the law “On the Condemnation of the Communist and Nazi Regimes”. The law provides for the renaming of all topographic objects whose names are in any way connected with the Soviet Union, as well as the demolition of monuments and the dismantling of memorial plaques.Share:
