Crimean Tatars: No Stalin Monument in the Crimea
The original plan, which caused international protests, foresaw a sculptural composition by Tsereteli of Stalin, Churchill, and Roosevelt.
Numerous protests reported earlier from both the Crimean and international communities may have played a role in having the authorities reconsider the plan. As a result, instead of a monument of the three individuals, there will remain a monument of Roosevelt.
There was no official explanation for the decision given.
