Another example of weird Lenin statue. Now, it has a following history. First installed in Communists times (no wonder), it was staying there for years, until somewhere in modern times some Russian kids didn't smash its head off. So it stayed for a long time with a crushed
head covered with a plastic bag. But later, local red party activists have got some sculptor involved to restore the original look of their idol, and.. as a result he got the head in place but it came out he got some mistakes in scaling the thing out.
On April the First fool's day the police of Russian city Krasnoyarsk decided to play a prank on the local drivers. They have got dark skinned guys dressed as road policemen to pull the cars off the road for paper checks. In Russia you won't usually see an African policemen, simply because the population of dark
skinned people in Russia is much less than one percent. So it was really surprising for the most of the drivers. Also, when such photos were posted by a Russian language blogger he was accused in racism. All because of the title he choose. It said: "And now we take bribes in bananas."
