Decommunization Has Failed: “Thanks to Lenin for Ukraine” Posters Appear in Kiev

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


In honor of the birthday of the revolutionary Vladimir Ilyich Lenin there was an action on the streets of Kiev with posters bearing the inscription “Thanks to Lenin for Ukraine”.

This was reported by the leader of the Komsomol of Ukraine Mikhail Kononovich on his official page on the social network Facebook.

So, in Kiev, on many Soviet monuments that were demolished by the government in the framework of so-called decommunisation, leaflets emerged with the loud slogan “Thanks to Lenin for Ukraine”.

According to Kononovich, Ukraine and Ukrainians remember and honor the memory of the founder of the Ukrainian State and the genius behind the world Communist movement V. I. Lenin.

“On the eve of the 147th birthday of Lenin in Kiev, there were posters with the inscription ‘Thanks to Lenin for Ukraine’. This is direct evidence that, despite the nationalist Kiev regime and political repression, the country knows its real history and is proud of it,” he writes.

After the head of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine Aleksandr Turchynov announced the beginning of the so-called anti-terrorist operation in Donbass, Kiev is consistently trying to introduce reforms for the refusal of everything Russian and Soviet – history books are rewritten, and Soviet monuments are demolished. But one can see that in Ukraine there are still people who honor their history and are proud of it.
