MOSCOW, May 7 (RIA Novosti)
Activists from Ukraine’s nationalist party Bratstvo on Monday mocked Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin by installing a Pissing Stalin Golden Monument in Kiev and in the western city Lvov, Unian news agency said.
The 1.50-meter wooden sculptures are covered in golden paint. The party also planned to unveil two Pissing Stalin Golden Monuments in Odessa and Dnepropetrovsk.
Kiev and Lvov police dismantled the Stalin Pis monuments hours after they were unveiled.
Initially, Lvov activists planned to set up the monument on Lvov’s downtown Rynok Square, but later changed their minds.
Several Lvov journalists and local police officers gathered on Rynok Square at 2 p.m. local time to see the monument, however nothing happened. Later, a young man came and invited them to come to the trade center nearby and enjoy the sculpture.
“It’s obvious that the sculpture would not have remained for long in the middle of the square, but here, we hope, it will stay for a while,” said Vitaly Cherny, editor with Bratstvo website.
He emphasized that the sculpture brings up associations with the famous Manneken Pis fountain in Brussels. The campaign with the golden monuments is a joke aimed to attract the attention of “mad fans of Stalin,” he added.
In late April, Activists of the radical All-Union Communist Party of Bolsheviks unveiled plans to erect monuments to Stalin in Kiev, Lvov, Odessa and Dnepropetrovsk on May 7, as part of Victory Day celebrations, the Party said in a statement on Wednesday.

- SirkoSublime Stupidity....08:42, 08/05/2012Just what would one expect from idiots whose ancestors were burnt on the stake by the Pole and forced to become 'Greek Catholics' a complete oxymoron. I wonder how many of them would be here today if it was not for the will and strength of Joseph Stalin? The Nazis would have exterminated them and pissed on their graves.
Perhaps next winter when they have no fuel, instead of stealing it from Russian pipelines they can use some of that piss to warm their houses and cook their food.
What a bunch of losers...!!! Yanukovich needs his head read for not putting them in jail. They are so misguided and lost that they believe the word, " Ukraina" which translates in all Slavic languages as "At the Frontier" somehow delineates a nation and a country. Ukrainians, basically a bunch of lost misbegotten Russians with empty heads....For if they were not misbegotten fools they would have realized that they are not simply desecrating the memory of a strong leader also that of millions who fought and died for him.
Ukraintsyi prostyi i durakyi....
Iran has been a central Russian ally in the Middle East, despite considerable tensions between the two. But by renewing dialogue with the West, the new Iranian leadership has chosen another direction. The shifting terrain in the region creates new strategic, political and economic challenges for Russia.
