The Sad Story of the Unique Monument

The Sad Story of the Unique Monument

This is a unique “hanging” monument of Ukraine and entire Europe.  It was built in 1975 in memory of the fighters of the First cavalry army. But as time went by, the monument was losing its integrity, turning into a large piece of armature… Its metal and stone has been stolen through the years by ignorant people.

  1. Stone stolen? More likely concrete sculpture on metal frame and concrete of poor quality failed after 45 years and falls off? Location and more history please?

  2. Frame structure is getting rusty. The whole thing will be on the ground pretty soon. Why doesn’t Russia take care of these things?

  3. This is a great shame.

    When people destroy monuments, they make it more likely that future generations to relive the catastrophe that led to the monument becoming necessary.

  4. The monument was in Olesko outside Lviv in Ukraine, 1st red cavalry army conquered Ukraine for the bolsheviks. and thus can bee seen as one of the reasons Ukraine became part of the USSR. Ukraine is a wast country and the west part is pro european community, while the eastern part are pro Russia. Lviv is probably the most pro EU part there is, so no surprise this monument was vandalized and finally removed.
