The good friends and allies of the United States in the relatively new nation of the Ukraine are showing us the way. No statues of the former Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin have been left across the Ukraine, the head of the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory, Vladimir Vyatrovich, said in an interview published yesterday.
A total of 2,389 monuments have been pulled down. In May 2015 the Ukraine adopted decommunization legislation, outlawing Soviet symbols. According to Ukrainian authorities, 987 towns and villages have been renamed across the country.
It can be done. Of course, the people who used to live in Kirovograd can't find their town on a map.
