On March, 16 the monument to a Russian military, for some reason, holding a cat in his hands, was unveiled in the park "Crimea in miniature in the palm of a hand" and was timed to the second year of the so-called "referendum" of 2014, which resulted in Russia’s annexation of Crimea.
The unveiling was attended by the park Director Victor Zhilenko and Konstantin Rubanenko, former Mayor of the city of Bakhchisarai.
Rubanenko said that the idea arose two years ago, but they have managed to realize it only now, according to the park administration.
As QHA reported earlier, the occupation authorities in Crimea urged to chip in for a monument to "polite people." However, the Crimean residents didn’t feel like giving hard-earned money for a monument to the "Savior of Crimea."
