In the West began the persecution of the British sculptor for the work on the monument to Islam Karimov

In Britain, a frank persecution of the sculptor began, who was invited as the creator of sculpture by the first president of Uzbekistan, Islam Karimov. This monument is planned to be installed in Moscow. This is a sculptor named Paul Day. He is known in the United Kingdom for the creation of a memorial to British soldiers and civilians who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. This monument was previously praised by Queen Elizabeth.

In the West began the persecution of the British sculptor for the work on the monument to Islam Karimov

Now Day is accused of having agreed to work on the creation of a sculpture of an “Uzbek dictator” after working on a patriotic monument. The work on the sculpture is funded by members of the family of Islam Karimov.

Edition Guardian quotes a statement from Human Rights Watch representative Hugh Williamson:
For more than 25 years, Karimov has stood for truly horrendous human rights violations as president of Uzbekistan. And to erect a monument in his honor is to completely ignore these terrible facts, it means rewriting storiesthat should cause serious concern to all involved.

Day himself said that he had already begun work on the sculpture, but refused to disclose all the details to the British press. Including the sculptor did not report on the size of the fee.

It is known that the public will see the final appearance of the sculpture in the summer of 2018 of the year - the year of the 80 anniversary of the birth of Karimov.

Paul Day:
I am not ready to discuss ethical issues on the creation of sculpture. I myself have been to Uzbekistan twice. And for my part I will do everything possible both for the government of this country and for the people.

        Why is this in Moscow?

        Because in Tashkent it will be desecrated and broken, and in Moscow, as if, nobody cares ... In general, there’s some kind of trouble with the monuments, you just need to ban the monuments to political leaders, or only a hundred years after death, and if they will deal with the history and merits of the activist, much less foreign ones.

          In 2015, the dismantling of the monument in memory of the heroes of the Second World War. Before that, an obelisk was removed in honor of residents of the city of Angaren who died on the fronts of the Second World War. In 2009, a monument to the Soviet Warrior was dismantled in Tashkent, busts of Soviet military leaders were removed from the Battle Glory Park. A monument was removed to the resident of Uzbekistan, Hero of the Soviet Union, Major General Sabir Rakhimov, and the district and metro station named after him were renamed. They demolished the Friendship Monument in Tashkent, in fact, a monument to the Shamakhmudov family, who adopted 15 children from different union republics during the war. Another vandalism --- in Nukus there was a monument --- a Russian and a Karakalpach. Russian destroyed. Probably, other facts can be found. The Basmachi cult began to spread. A museum in memory of victims of repression.

      The Russian people were within Russia (Kiev, Moscow, etc.). The Turkic peoples (to whom the Uzbeks belong) are the closest to the Russian in genes ... like the Finno-Ugric. Not to mention cohabitation in the empire and the USSR and work for the good of the Russian Federation now. And unlike the brothers Ukrainians and the Baltic states, the banks are not confused.

      Why are we outraged? As they say: "divorced here have not gone." This is what. As soon as they become mathematically larger and some thread Babai will become the mayor of Moscow ... The friendship of peoples will be provided to us. Just do not rub me here about the real friendship of peoples.

    just do it. especially if this monument is not in Russia ... those who fled from Uzbekistan during his reign do not particularly welcome the idea of ​​a reindeer breeder-mayor to erect a similar monument in Moscow.

    Work on the sculpture is funded by members of the Islam Karimov family.

    Well, robbed the country, well, okay. Let at least a “tribute” be paid by relatives.
    For example, I sell spices in my bazaar - it’s all Uzbeks, and they don’t want to go home at all, sometimes we’re thumping together. Not an indicator, but a pointer to what Abduganievich Karimov led the country to.
    And it’s better to erect a monument to Beria or Stalin, with them the country blossomed, and they raised it from poverty.

    In order for Russia to find out about something, it must be banned in England. For example, the British will soon ban the president, for example, who will he represent? That's right, Uzbekistan. Will the Uzbeks be happy, unlike us?

      Remember the joke how a boy in a sandbox of a policeman sculpted? And then a fireman. So sculpt it yourself, in Tashkent, in Kokand. From what you want, from that and sculpt the figures, just do not add sand, otherwise the fireman will succeed.
