The statue of Robert Milligan was dismantled in London

The statue of slave trader Robert Milligan, who lived in the 18th century, was dismantled from a pedestal near the London Museum. This is reported by the agency Reuters.

It is noted that the city authorities found the monument unacceptable to the inhabitants of the city in modern realities. In particular, this is due to protests against racial discrimination caused by the murder of a Negro, George Floyd by police in the United States.
