I’m guessing socialism isn’t working out too well over there?
Understandable, but they are baiting the wolf and providing reasons for the Eastern regions to organize militias and talk about secession.
We’ll do the same to the Obama statues when theygo up.
Do you means the Lenin statues that stood there when all of Yanukovich’s predecessors were in power, such as Timoshenko as Prime Minister? Does it say why they suddenly started now after 23 years? Just curious.
Don’t know why there starting this only now but I assume Ukies see the Lenin statues as symbols of Russia and Russian power over them. That issue being at the forefront at the moment may be the reason for new interest in destroying them.
WAIT! WAIT! Don’t destroy them! The Obama regime will give you good money for them! They want to set them up in all major American cites.
Meanwhile our godless leftists pay homage to his statue in Seattle. Or is that Marx?
Scrooge leftism everywhere and anywhere. Go Ukrainians.
You know it’s a true revolution when statues start getting tipped over.
Yushchenko let them stand too.
There’s also some very USSR-constitution-like language in the current Ukranian constitution.
If the Eastern regions are really offended when Lenin statues are torn down, then let them secede.
too much hope and change can ruin your day and your country!
Obama says.... I will trade you one winston churchill statue for two lenin statues and I will throw in monticello for the mumified body of lenin.
I havent read any discussions around the timing of this particular uprising..
several of us have thought of that!! AMEN
protected by a cadre of former FCC lackies...
While watching the video, I could not help thinking if obama has his way, the iconic statues here like that of Lincoln, would be torn down and replaced with his image.
Impossible you say...hmmmm!
We have been experiencing the impossible daily, yea hourly.
I dont doubt that he’d like to see his statue all over the nation.
LOL——say isn’t there a Bammy boy statue in Indonesia somewhere that recently got demoted to a lesser location?
Bam can do a three way trade blockbuster deal and move his statue to a more glorious location for adoring global leftists to partake.
