In Kharkov restored the bust of Marshal of the USSR Georgy Zhukov, who had previously been razed by nationalists. This was announced by the mayor of the city Gennady Kernes on his page in Facebook .
“As promised, today returned to the place,” wrote the mayor. He also published a photo of the restored monument.
Representatives of the National housing demolished the bust of Marshal Zhukov on 2 June. The protesters climbed the monument, and put on him a rope and threw a monument on the ground. The police first tried to stop the radicals, but later decided to retreat. Some of the police officers filmed the events on the phone. On the site of the monument, the radicals established the Ukrainian flag.
In 2015 in Ukraine was adopted the law on decommunization involving, in particular, a ban on the use of Soviet symbols, the condemnation of the Communist regime of the Soviet Union and the opening of the country’s Soviet secret police archives. In the framework of the implementation of the law renamed cities, streets, dismantled monuments to Soviet leaders and figures. In particular, metro station, near which there was a monument to Zhukov, to 2016 is named after him. After renaming, the station was named “sports Palace”.
