Kutaisi Memorial Immortalized in Moscow
Moscow has had another monument dedicated to the Great Patriotic War. The statuary group "We Were Together in Our Fight against Fascism" was erected on the Poklonnaya Hill.

As one of the monument authors, Charman of the Russion Union of Artists Andrey Kovalchuk told us in his interview to GeorgiaTimes, the explosion of the Memorial of Fame in Kutaisi made him think: was the victory really common for all USSR republics?

Trying to prove to the whole world their right to independence, Georgian rulers resort to most barbarian methods and like most fervent opponents of Herostratus they simply destroy their own history. GeorgiaTimes correspondent discussed what this self-affirmation attempt can lead to with Gulbaat Rtskhiladze, head of the Institute of Eurasia (Tbilisi).2010-12-21 17:27

The current regime in Georgia has long forsaken the notion of the Great Patriotic War. Soviet occupation museums, textbooks rewritten, monuments to the warriors who died for "territorial integrity" of the republic are attributes of Saakashvili’s Georgia. That is why when Glory Memorial was blown up in Kutaisi last year many people just shook their heads tired of Mishiko’s blasphemy. However, as time shows, the Georgian leader has to face his Russophobia on his own. People in both countries favored reconstruction of the Memorial analog in Poklonnaya Gora in Moscow. And today is the opening day.
