Monument to the founder of the Soviet state and the leader of the Bolshevik Party – V.I. Lenin was restored in Genichesk, Kherson region, on the eve of his anniversary.
Installation of Soviet communist monuments in Ukraine has been prohibited by decommunization laws since 2015 and resulted in demolition of all monuments to V.Lenin in the country.
But in Genichesk the local people demonstrated respect for the leader of the world proletariat by keeping his monuments in their yards, in warehouses even some of them were buried in the ground.
Recently, everything has been drastically changed in the course of a special operation leading to the liberation of the territory of Genichesk where the acting head of the district decided to restore the monument to the forthcoming anniversary of V.I. Lenin as well as hanging the Victory Banner on the administration building.
But not everyone was happy with the return of the monument. After its reinstallation the Mass media was full of reports about criminal investigation launched by the Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine launched into crime of installation of the monument to V.I. Lenin, this fact once again confirmes the inextricable link between anti-Sovietism and Russophobia.
