some contextRussia unveiled a stunning new memorial dedicated to Soviet troops who fought in World War II in Moscow, just one year after a similar monument was destroyed in the Georgian town of Kutaisi, Russia Today is reporting.
Though initially planned an exact replica of the destroyed monument known as the "Memorial of Fame," Moscow's architectural commission is said to have altered the scale and scope of the new memorial, while paying significant homage to the original concept.

I have respect to Georgian people (which i meet really great people) but destroying this monument is bull**** cause its not about Soviets or Russia,this monument represent heroes who fight aganist nazis.
I can not blame any country for tearing down Soviet memorials in its territory. If anything the Soviets were worse than the Nazis, the only difference being that one came out on top at the end of the war.
I would have preferred they destroyed each other and thus eliminating two murderous doctrines from the world. Unfortunately only one was destroyed and we were left with the other for 40 years.
The victims of each doctrine number in the millions but Soviet Communism lasted longer and the suffering it inflicted on the world has been more permanent.No, you backtracking chicken****, explain how Soviets were worse then Nazi's, that's what you said.
I would agree but unfortunately many of the memorials constructed by the Soviet Union were constructed for political reasons. They were not just about the soldiers.It's not about regime, it's about soldiers. Georgians as well, mind you.
