In the Ukrainian capital it is planned to build a memorial of “Russian Aggression” in the grounds of the National Museum of the History of Ukraine in the Second World War, reported the art director of the museum Anatoly Gaydamaka.
Kiev wants to build a memorial complex that carries the working name “Russian Aggression” near the “Motherland” monument. According to the art director of the National Museum of the History of Ukraine in the Second World War Anatoly Gaydamaka, the construction will comprise many “symbols and allegories”.
It should be noted that earlier the Kiev authorities ordered the dismantling of the Soviet coat of arms from the “Motherland” monument. According to the law on decommunization, also a set of monuments to Lenin on the territory of Ukraine had to be dismantled. On May 16th, 2017, the Rada adopted a bill criminalizing the use of the St. George’s Ribbon.
