The Museum of Wax Figures in France has done what many Ukrainians would like to do – it has removed the figure of Russian President Vladimir Putin from the exhibition.
In particular, the Greven Wax Museum in Paris decided to remove its wax figure of Putin because of the war in Ukraine and after visitors damaged it over the weekend, according to cbsnews .
“For the first time at the Greven Museum, we have removed a person so quickly because of current historical events,” said museum director Yves Delommo, separating Putin’s head from his body and locking the figure in a vault.
“Staff don’t want to walk past him every day,” Delommo added.
The museum features several world leaders, but Delommo said it never exhibits figures of “dictators like Hitler”, adding: “We do not want to exhibit Putin today.”
The figure of Putin stood between the figures of US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping. When asked who could replace him at the exhibition, Delommo said that it could be the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky.
“He became a hero for resisting and did not flee his country,” said the museum’s director. “He could very well take his place among the great men of history.”
