In Kyiv, employees of "Kyivblagoustroy" dismantled another symbol of Bolshevik tyranny – a monument to the participants of the "January armed uprising of 1918".

This was reported by the press service of the Kyiv City State Administration on December 23.

According to Kyivblagoustroy, the monument weighed about 2.5 tons.

This is all that remains of the Soviet pedestal

"The ideological role of this pedestal was to glorify the Bolsheviks, who staged an armed rebellion against the Ukrainian Central Rada and the Ukrainian People's Republic. For decades, Soviet and imperial executioners have been imposed on us as heroes. Now it's time to get rid of the enemy's cultural influence forever," commented Hanna Starostenko, Deputy Head of the Kyiv City State Administration.
