Tonight on Friday April 17 Lenin monument fell down in Stanytsia Luhanska. This monument was standing near local administration building and was almost the only object in the center of the village that wasn’t damaged during military activities.
The closest terrorist positions are located just 1 km away from administration building, last year and at the beginning of this year the village was under heavy fire few times a day with the use of artillery, tanks, mortars, MRLS “Grad” and so on. Administration building was also damaged and only Lenin remained unhurt. Yesterday patriotic activists of the village put yellow-blue mask on Lenin, and later they gave him national flag of Ukraine.
In the morning people from local administration came to work and they saw that Lenin is in horizontal position. Obviously Lenin couldn’t stand national Ukrainian symbolic and decided step down from the pedestal, but stumbled and fall down. Police investigates details of this incident.
