Stalin’s monument dismantled in Georgia’s Tkibuli city
Georgia, Tbilisi, June 27 /Trend, N.Kirtskhalia/
Stalin's monument was dismantled in the Georgian city of Tkibuli. The monument was dismantled after police blocked all approaches to the central square.
Dismantling was held without incident.
The city authorities claim that the dismantling of Stalin's monument was due to the decision of the local self-government - Sakrebulo to reconstruct the Tkibuli center.
It should be noted that the monument to Joseph Stalin was placed in Tkibuli, when "the great dictator" was alive, but the monument was dismantled during the national liberation movement in the 1990s. The monument was returned to the place in President Eduard Shevardnadze's time.
The second monument to Stalin was dismantled over the last week in Georgia. The first one was dismantled in Gori.
