In an unannounced move, after midnight on June 25, the authorities removed the bronze statue of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin from the central square of his hometown of Gori.
The statue, which is planned to be moved to Stalin’s museum in Gori, will be replaced with a memorial of “victims of totalitarian regime and of the August war,” officials said.
The late night removal of the statue apparently aimed at avoiding possible protest of those local residents of Gori, who were strongly against of the statue's removal from the town's central square.
