Monuments of Soviet leaders were pulled down in Kharkiv

The video is released by the Kharkiv Crisis Info Centre.

On Saturday, April 11, 2015, in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv a group of masked men pulled down monuments of Soviet leaders Sergo Ordzhonikidze, Russian Nikolai Rudnev and Bolshevik leader Yakov Sverdlo. Activists who are said to be part of an anti-Russia group stated that “community of Kharkiv powered law on condemnation of the communist regime” as last week Ukrainian Parliament (Verkhovna Rada) passed laws banning Nazi and Communist symbols.

Remains of the demolished monuments were loaded into a van and taken to an unknown destination.
