    Now if ESTONIAN kids had done this, I bet there would be a different reaction.

      Channel 5 is St.Pet channel. I think it’s the second channel after Channel 1 (ORT) in meter range – it’s federal now. I’m half Russian – half Ukranian. Your link (the second, at http://www.km... would be fun if it wasn’t so sad.

      Ok, but I’m then actually a bit surprised, if Lenin statues were after all so far between even in Soviet times. I mean, Stockhom has 1 million inhabitants, and it has one statue of an old dictator king (Karl XIIth), just like a russian city of the same size has one statue of Lenin..

      Also, I don’t really think statues mean much. What matters is how society is organized. You don’t change that by renaming streets or tearing down statues.

      Pink Lenin has made you gay.

      • Pros says:

        Waddya know? The monkey can post messages! I hardly can understand the nonsense but evolution is truly an unbelievable thing!

        • Misha says:

          Oh, the little puppy is peeing as high as he can! Oh!
          He fell over and peed on himself! What a sad funny little puppy!

          You’re projecting, Pros. You are doing exactly what you are
          accusing the other monkeys of doing.

          • Pros says:

            What we’re seeing here is the first attempt to make a logical deduction. There is still lots of prattle, which is probably typical for the newly discovered primates. But you can feel that something is going on in that funky little head.

    I think Lenin would be pleased that someone called attention to his monument in this way. How often do people walk past and do not notice? Now they will see Lenin’s statue and perhaps reflect briefly, as we have.

  8. tryams says:

    I don’t care about Lenin, but I find that disgusting. Vandalism and nothing more.

    Emo kids – kultura

  10. Mr.Tinkles says:

    This is the “liberty” that the former Soviet people want?

  11. Mr.Tinkles says:

    Right,if you want to give more fun to Lenin’s statue,DON’T PAINT PINK BALLS ON HIS HEAD!
    A little bit of respect is good
    If they don’t paint his face…
    He was a great art apreciator,and this is the people’s art

  12. [...] Pink Lenin from English Russia [...]

    Polka dot!


  16. [...] Det er fortsat uvist, hvem der står bag attentatet mod sovjetlederens bagparti. Det er dog ikke første gang Lenin-statuer har været udsat for hærværk og bombesprængninger, som jeg skriver mere om her. Der har sågar været eksempler på fantisifuld spraymaling af Lenin. [...]

    Imbrattare i monumenti è da vandali…altro che punk-arte!
