    Justin Bieber should know better than to climb statues. Incorrigible.

    They did well to get up there, it’s guarded 24 hrs a day. Shame that ex-mayor put that abomination up in Moscow.

    Should be in St Petersburg. The same artist did a statue in USA for Columbus and even uglier.

    There isn’t really much else left to spoil in Moscow. The city is a patchwork of different, often incongruous and inconsistent architectural styles, so doesn’t really make any difference.
