Lenin`s statue to be restored in Russia
Moscow: A statue of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin, which was damaged in a bomb blast last year, will be restored in St Petersburg.
The bronze statue of the communist leader was unveiled November 07, 1926 at the Finlyandsky railway station where he made a historic speech after returning from exile in 1917 to lead the October Revolution. The statue was later moved closer to the Neva River.
The monument was badly damaged in a blast that took place April 01, 2009. Authorities subsequently ordered the dismantling of the monument for restoration work, which cost 6 million rubles (USD 204,000).
It is expected to be put back in place April 20, two days before the 140th birthday of the revolutionary.
