Ayastefanos'taki Rus Abidesinin Yıkılışı Demolition of the Monument at San Stefano (Turkish: Ayastefanos'taki Rus Abidesinin Yıkılışı) is a 1914 Turkish documentary film directed by former army officer Fuat Uzkınay. It is the oldest known Turkish-made film, with a length of 150 metres.
The documentary showed the demolition of the Russian victory monument erected in San Stefano (the modern Yeşilköy quarter of Istanbul) after the Russo-Turkish War (1877–1878), which ended with the Treaty of San Stefano (following the Congress of Berlin in 1878 it was superseded by the Treaty of Berlin). The reason for the monument's demolition was the declaration of war between the Ottoman Empire and Russian Empire in 1914, during World War I.
