The monument to Vladimir Lenin near St. Petersburg’s Finnish Railway Station was already vandalized at the end of November. Someone mounted a large knife in the hand of the monument for no particular reason.

The monument was erected in 1926 in honor of Lenin’s return to the city after emigration on April 3, 1917. The monument was not damaged in the Leningrad Blockade during WWII. People made a wooden box for the monument, filled the box with sand and covered the pedestal with soil.
