The Lenin Monument disappeared last night in the town of Shepetivska in the Khmelnyts’kyi Region. This is according to the local Internet publication Socportal.
It reports that the monument disappeared over the night of February 6-7.
On Friday, only the base remained standing; it is located across from the District Administration Building.
The local Communist Party of Ukraine is extremely outraged by Lenin’s disappearance.
“This proves that the main goal of the organizers and inspirers of protests going on is not a struggle for European values,” said the Communists, “but inflaming hatred, frightening opponents, and the destruction of Ukrainian statehood by all means necessary. Including its territorial breakup.”
