Moscow Times | Russia’s last Stalin Street erected a bust of the dictator after a stitch
A bust of Joseph Stalin, the second leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, erected on the last remaining Stalin Street in the Russian Federation was removed in a matter of days.
The statue erected by the Communist Party in the town of Ogni in the Republic of Dagestan has sparked heated debate in the region. With the appointment of Nikita Khrushchev to the Soviet Union, a period of disintegration began in 1956, many statues of the Georgian dictator were overthrown, and many of the streets named after him were changed. One of the greatest examples of this is the renaming of Stalingrad in 1961 to Volgograd.
On Monday, local TV channel Ogni TV shared footage of the moment the statue was removed with a crane.
The mayor of the town said the Communist Party had not received permission to erect the statue. The party members said they would apply for the statue to be erected again when the non-working period began due to the coronavirus epidemic in Russia.
The Moscow Times reported that under Vladimir Putin, Stalin’s image was trying to be positive again. According to a poll conducted in recent years, 70% of Russians are positive about the dictator, whom Putin calls a “complex figure.”
