Kyiv – On one of Kiev’s main streets stands a new statue by the author Dmytro Ivo, which depicts Vladimir Putin. The work is called “Shoot” and the plate next to the statue says, “History has two destinies for war criminals: the court, or … Putler, do you understand the message?” About the new installation on your
Ukrainian BBC journalist Myroslava Petsa said.
Putin gets a statue in Kyiv. But probably not quite what he’d like it to be. The place is symbolic - it’s only meters aways from where Lenin used to stand in Kyiv. You know, the one who “created Ukraine” acc to Putin. Lenin is no longer there - his statue was demolished in 2013. pic.twitter.com/3zLzK4WllS— Myroslava Petsa (@myroslavapetsa) May 7, 2022
The statue is the color of rusty iron and consists of three parts and a pedestal. He depicts the head of the Russian president with a gun in his mouth held by his own hand. The author placed the statue just a few meters from the place where the statue of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin stood until 2013.
Dmytro Iv is a Ukrainian artist and especially a sculptor, whose works are exhibited around the world. The sculptor’s profile on the Agora Gallery website characterizes his work as “reflecting politics, faith and important world experiences. However, it is important for his work not to reflect culture, but the lack of culture that occurs in humanity, from vice to humiliation.”
