They cut off the cat, unable to withstand the ridicule: the monument to the occupier in Bakchysarai became even ruder.
In occupied Bakhchysarai a monument to the Russian troops who captured Crimea and called themselves “Polite People” has been altered. The cat, which was an object of mockery by social network users, has been removed from the hands of the “Bighead.” Neskuchni Novosti announced this on RBK.
This is evidenced in the photo showing Victor Zhilenko, the director of the park where the strange statue was erected, throwing up his hands showing the absence of the cat from the “Polite Person’s” hands.
You’ll remember that the media announced the monument to the “Polite People,” erected a month ago, and the stormy reception that was given to the monument’s ambiguous symbolism.
The social networks are laughing at the modification of the monument to the occupier of Crimea. In his blog on Facebook, Journalist Roman Koshman published the photos of before and after the disappearance of the cat, commenting: “They cut the cat off 🙂 The green Buryat is left to please himself now.”
Some additional internet memes playing with the monument:
