Can't believe Lenin monuments still exist. Waiting for one to show up in DC.—

A statue of Vladimir Lenin was taken down and smashed last night by Ukrainian citizens who are fed up with government.
Pictures of the Kiev, Ukraine statue going down were captured and put on social media.
Some wonder why a statue of Lenin was still standing at all.
How/why was there an un-toppled Lenin statue in Kiev until now?—

Wait, there was still a statue of Lenin standing in Kiev?—

Of course, the mainstream media were nowhere to be found.
I'm surprised that the media has paid little attention to Ukraine as people toppled down a Lenin statue in the nation's capital.—
