Georgian authorities do not need Stalin memorial – Communist Party2011-02-17 14:05
Georgian communists demand that the authorities show stronger activity in the issue of the erection of a new monument to Stalin instead of the removed statue of the Soviet chief in Gori.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to Voice of America, it was earlier reported that the monument would be taken to the territory of Iosiph Stalin's house museum. However, the project was never realized.
As was told by head of the regional organization of the United Communist Party of Georgia Alexander Lursmanishvili, there is the collection of signatures of the local residents demanding to set up a monument to Stalin at the new spot. According to the spokesman of the Georgian communists, over three and a half thousand citizens have put their signatures under the appeal. In Lursmanishvili's opinion, it is quite probable that the country's authorities are deliberately delaying the matter.
Let us remind you that the Stalin monument in Gori was dismantled last June. The event caused wide public resonance. Not so long ago, Georgian Ministry of Culture reported that the monument to Iosiph Stalin dismantled in Gori will be replaced by a memorial to the victims of the "five-day" war in August 2008 and Stalin's reprisals.
The authors of the memorial are Georgian sculptors Tamar Kvesitadze and Paata Sannaya. They created a composition depicting 11 naked figures symbolizing those who died in the August-2008 and in the course of Stalin's reprisals.
