Hammer and sickle removed from Kyiv’s Motherland monument

The hammer-and-sickle symbol has been removed from the Motherland monument in Kyiv as the dismantling of Soviet symbols continues in Ukraine.

The director of the Museum of the History of Ukraine in World War II, Yuriy Savchuk, on August 1 posted a video on Facebook showing a crew removing the symbol from the shield held high in the left hand of the monument.

“This is the moment that millions of Ukrainians, generations of Ukrainians have dreamed about,” Savchuk said.
