KIEV, December 9 (RIA Novosti) – Protestors in Ukraine have vandalized another statue of Vladimir Lenin, hours after a monument to the Communist revolutionary was toppled in the capital Kiev.

Police in the southern town of Kotovsk said that an unidentified group cut off the upper part of a concrete monument to the founder of the Soviet Union late on Sunday, leaving fragments scattered on the ground. Detectives have begun an investigation.

The incident occurred shortly after protestors tore down a statue of Lenin in central Kiev as hundreds of thousands of people attended an opposition rally to demand the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych for his rejection of an Association Agreement creating closer links between Ukraine and the European Union.

Police said that a criminal investigation for “vandalism” and “mass unrest” had been launched.

    These opposition party groups are fools helped by foreign Soros funded NGO,s to create chaos and possibly a coup.__Remember the OTPOR movement in Yugoslavia__Joining the failed EU thru multiple economy crisis can bring only more troubles.
