Sofia Soviet Monument

Parts of statues from a massive communist-era monument in Sofia have been located outside a warehouse in a village near the Bulgarian capital Sofia. The statues were removed from the Monument to the Soviet Army in central Sofia in December 2023. Soviet monuments in several parts of Central and Eastern Europe have been attacked or dismantled since Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.
