 "It was only at the end of the second year of the war that the Cabinet of Ministers realized that Pushkin was not part of Ukrainian culture, and officials approved Kyiv's initiative to demolish this monument. And thank you for that. We are demolishing it!" wrote Kyiv City Council member Dmytro Bilotserkovets on his Facebook page.
