Finnish city removes last publicly displayed statue of Lenin

Summary by Ground News
A city in southeastern Finland has removed the country’s last publicly displayed statue of Russian revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin. The bronze bust was designed and constructed by Estonian sculptor Matti Varik in the late 1970s on orders from Moscow. It was presented to Kotka in 1979 as a gift from Tallinn, then the capital of the Estonian Soviet republic. Other European countries have moved to get rid of their remaining Soviet-era monuments since Russia invaded Ukraine.
