A giant statue of Lenin was pulled down by jubilant crowds in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv on September 28. Thousands of people marched through the city waving Ukrainian flags before gathering at the 20-meter monument. Previous attempts to pull it down were prevented by pro-Russian protestors, amid violent clashes in March and April. (RFE/RL's Ukrainian service)
