Federal Court, Los Angeles (1940)--an example of Fascist Moderne. The upper floors of the building at the lower right were once a jail.

Most are bizzare, downright ugly, and commemorate bad things. But that Kiev War memorial is a normal large statue with a sword, and commmorates 2 battles where at least 800,000 died in the Nazi war.
Not really that weird.

The third one looks like those things the Dutch throw in the water to protect causeways and dikes from the waves.

Then there is the monument in Vienna that the Soviets built to commemorate their departure.

They forgot to mention the Lenin statue in the Fremont district of Seattle.

This article screws up some facts. The Buzludzha monument is in Bulgaria. Bulgaria was never part of Yugoslavia.
