A few days ago some pranksters from a village near the Russian city Bryansk have accomplished a paint job on their local Lenin monument making the once most powerful communist leader look rather like a clown from the local flea market.
Thus this is the latest of the series of Lenin Monuments pranks that took place in Russia lately. We reviewed them all and now this post is a sort of compilation of this fresh one and ones we had before.
Local communists and most of old people were really disturbed with this. “We gotta find them and punish to the fullest extent of the law!”, they demanded, like if there is a special law that can be applied to the statue painters.
Local authorities summoned emergency workers to clean the statue up in order to lower the social tensions around that. “The job was done very well”, says one cleaning worker on site, “they didn’t use sprays but had brushes and painted each element manually, just take a look at Lenin’s white socks. We have found one of those brushes nearby here”.
Colorful Lenin is cool but not the first one of the Lenin statues that have been affected by a touch of brush of the unknown artist. A while before there was another accident in another Russian city where they have painted pink circles all across the mighty leader’s figure:
They said it was probably local EMO group who was responsible for this.
Then, in another Russian city there was another cool and funny Lenin victim. Some local genius has put… a scream mask on Lenin’s head at night:
I don’t know how the communist party activists had went thru this at that time, but for sure they couldn’t cope for a long time with the king of Lenin pranks that happened on April the 1st, some years ago in St. Petersburg.
That was the biggest, the most bald and risky trick people in Russia has ever accomplished with Lenin statues, except probably the times in early nineties of the last century when hundreds of Lenin monuments were dismantled by furious mobs all across the country during the rough awakening from seventy year long sleep of communism.
And so, on April Fool’s Day they made Lenin Fart Day, with putting 300 gram TNT explosives inside the monument that was located in very busy city square of seven million population Russian city.
Then at designated hour they heard a boom. Be sure it was heard by hundreds or even thousands of passers by as this unfortunate Lenin statue was right in front of St. Petersburg’s railway station.
The consequences might be very rough for the ones who made this happen, but it is still unclear have they been found or not.
That’s probably all for now, we’ll keep you updated as always, and when the next Lenin statue would go berserk or flies to Mars you’ll see it first here!
