Plans for ‘Soviet Occupation Park’ in Kyiv

The authorities of Ukraine’s capital are seeking land to create a park of monuments that fell under decommunization.

This was reported by deputy of the Kyiv “Solidarity” Rada on his Facebook page.

“The city should be tolerant to the history, whatever it was, said MPs. Besides, creation of the park will to increase tourist attractiveness of the capital,” said the statement in the social network.

According to one of the proposals, the park should become a “filter” that will separate exhibits, which must be preserved for future generations from the exhibits, which do not have historical and cultural value.

The decommunization laws in Ukraine came into force on May 21, 2015. They prohibited Soviet symbols, condemned the communist regime, opened the archives of the Soviet secret services and recognized UPA as fighters for independence of Ukraine.
