Last night a monument installed in honor of the Ukrainian-Russian friendship was demolished in the Friendship Park, Moskovsky Av., Kharkov city, according to the posts in social networks by eyewitnesses as cited by VGORODE.UA.


In comments, Kharkiv citizens say with bitter irony, “No friendship – no monument.”


This monument was unveiled July 21, 2003 at the intersection of Moscow Av. and Dobrokhotova St. within the Russian Year in Ukraine. May 15, 2014 the unknown damaged the monument: painted over the word “friendship”, sprayed the stele with red paint and wrote obscene words on it.
