A statue of Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill was erected at Yalta’s Livadia Palace in Crimea on Thursday.
The sculpture was commissioned to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the famed Yalta Conference which took place there between the “Big Three” heads of state of the allied powers, where they cooperated to plan the post-war order.
“Unveiling of the memorial is another warning to politicians and speculators of history, who are trying to pervert the history of WWII and post-war period”- the chairman of Russia’s State Duma said.
It should be noted that the Mejlis of Crimean Tatar people opposed the erection of the monument, which depicts Statin, who ordered a mass deportation of Crimean Tatars from their Homeland in 1944.
Meanwhile, the president of the Fund of Historical Prospects Natalia Narochinskaya said that the statue was not a memorial of Stalin, but a memorial of the “Big Three”.
She also noted that erection of any statue may arouse mixed feelings and said the critics of the monument aimed to depreciate “great-power period of the history of our country, then Soviet Union”.
