KIEV, Ukraine — Protesters in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, toppled the city’s main statue of Lenin on Sunday and then pounded it into chips with a sledgehammer as a crowd chanted and cheered. The destruction of the statue was a cathartic moment in the biggest day of demonstrations so far against President Viktor F. Yanukovich’s turn away from Europe...
Interesting, this reminds me a bit of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, its surreal to see them protesting FOR free trade (or at least the EU version of it). Its also surreal to see that they still have statues of Lenin up in Ukraine.
