Monument to Vladimir Lenin
Location: Sucleia, Transnistria
Sculptor: Not known
Genre: Soviet monument, former USSR
The monument was vandalised in 2010 and then subsequently pieced back together. A new head that was ordered as part of the reconstruction process was too big for the body and is the reason for the disproportionate appearance of the statue.
