There are still 170 monuments to Soviet soldiers on the territory of the Lviv region, which must be dismantled and moved to a special open-air museum.
All monuments, memorials and commemorative signs to Soviet soldiers in the Lviv region intend to be transferred to a special open-air museum of occupation (skansen). Currently, the search for a suitable site for this is underway.
About the implementation of this idea told Oleg Radyk, adviser to the head of the regional military administration, on the air of Lviv Wave radio.
According to the data of the Lviv OVA, there are still 170 monuments to the so-called “liberators” on the territory of the region. They are mostly located in villages or small towns and are in a neglected state.
Calls for the demolition of these objects of the totalitarian regime are increasingly heard in the communities of Lviv Oblast.
According to Oleg Radyk, the head of the Lviv OVA, Maksym Kozytskyi, fully supports the idea of creating an “occupation period park”.
“But you don’t have to wait for its creation. “Representatives of local communities should remove these “sacred” Soviet stelae and memorial signs, and then transfer them to the museum as a reminder of what should never happen again,” he noted.
We will remind, Odesa Mayor Gennadiy Trukhanov proposes create a park complex “Imperial and Soviet Past”where part of the architectural monuments of Odessa should be moved.
