Kyiv administration finds a new home for demolished Soviet monuments

Communist past reminders will be put in a museum at Zhulyany International Airport 

A museum for all of the taken-down Soviet monuments.

The statues and memorabilia that were removed from Kyiv streets will now be stored at one of the lots at Zhulyany international airport.

Dmytro Bilotserkivets with the Kyiv City Administration says since the reminders of the communist era were not damaged, it's only right to keep them in a museum-style facility.

Therefore, Bilotserkivets says Kyiv residents shoul follow by example of Poland and the Baltics where the Soviet-era monuments were moved to museums to educate people about the communist regime.
