List of statues of Vladimir Lenin
In the Soviet Union, many cities had statues and monuments of Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, the revolutionary and leader of the Russian SFSR, better known by the nom de plume Lenin. With the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, many of them were broken with no permission from their authors. This happened even earlier in the European post-Communist states and in the Baltic states. However, in many of the former Soviet Republics (namely Russia, Belarus and Ukraine) many remain, and some new ones have been erected.
In Ukraine, Lenin monuments and other Soviet-era monuments are still being removed as a symbol of oppression. However, on the occasion of the 139th anniversary of Lenin two new Lenin monuments were erected in Luhansk Oblast.
