Historic landmark removed

The statue of Lenin has dominated the main square of Cherkassy for many years and even in the initial foment of the newly independent Ukraine back in the early 1990's, only a few of the Soviet icons were destroyed.

However, in recent years, perhaps emboldened by 16 years of independence, a more confident populous has been campaigning for Lenin's demise. Churches have been actively lobbying for Lenin to be replaced by the Ten Commandments carved in granite.
Some angry voices from older citizens, who look back with nostalgia to a bygone era, were raised during the night as a giant crane was used to remove the icon but they were outnumbered by riot police and cheering counter protesters.
