The last standing monument to Communist leader Vladimir Lenin has been dismantled in the town of Novhorod-Siversky, Chernihiv region, reported.

The local monument has survived 2.5 years of de-communisation efforts across Ukraine, the report reads.

Apparently, local authorities were in no hurry to implement the relevant law on de-communisation, but local activists were too persistent to resist.
