Council for De-Russification, Decommunization and Decolonization to Appear in Ukraine

It will consider decisions of local authorities to dismantle or move objects of the Soviet past.


Council for de- Russification , decommunization and decolonization will be created in Ukraine.

This was reported on the page of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine in the social network Facebook . 

After the full-scale invasion of Russia, the request to replace the Soviet and Russian heritage with Ukrainian ones intensified significantly, they say in the Ministry of Culture.

“Now we have held public discussions and initiated the creation of an advisory body – the Council under the Ministry and the Institute of National Remembrance, which will deal with the issues of de-Russification, decommunization and decolonization,” the message says. 

It is noted that local governments in dialogue with society will come to a common decision on the dismantling or transfer of objects of the Soviet past, and then coordinate it with the Council. 

Earlier it was reported that the monument of “friendship of peoples” of Ukraine, the Russian Federation and Belarus is being dismantled in the Chernihiv region. 

Recall that a monument to the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin was dismantled in Ternopil.

Also , the monument to Pushkin  disappeared from the pedestal in Nikolaev. The mayor of the city Alexander Senkevich said that it was dismantled by public utilities. The fate of the monument will be determined after the victory.

  1. After all that destruction of soviet and nazi monuments perhaps Ukraine could build a great wall to keep the orcs out in the future. On the orc side of the wall they could display the number of dead orcs in each oblast to remind them of what happens when you enter uninvited.
