Rapid changes (part 2) Lenin(less) in Dnepro

 Friday evening a crowd spent about six hours taking down the Lenin statue in the center of Dnepropetroesk, so on Sunday after church we stopped there to look. As you can see it has turned into a memorial to the many people who died in Kiev a few days before, with flowers and candles.

In Zaporosia the Lenin is still standing, but there are discussions about removing it. Someone who blocked it's removal has been fired from office. It is a much larger statue, looking up main street (Lenina) with a hand outstretched to the big dam, as if to say look what I have given you.
Many people were there taking photos

There is a Ukrainian flag in Lenin's place

The sign says Praise Heroes of Maidon
