Monument to Joseph Stalin opened in Telavi (Georgia)

62
Monument to Joseph Stalin opened in Telavi (Georgia)September 1, in the Georgian city of Telavi (Kakheti region), a monument to Joseph Stalin was unveiled. It is installed next to the memorial in honor of those killed in World War II.


The monument to the Soviet leader was created on the initiative of the public organization "Stalinist" and the Union of Georgian Veterans, a REGNUM correspondent reports. Money for him was collected from voluntary donations. They opened the monument in a solemn atmosphere - wreaths were laid at the memorial, and veterans read several poems dedicated to Stalin.

Earlier, Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili spoke out against the restoration of the monument to Joseph Stalin. He called the communist leader "anti-Georgian." “Restoration of the monument to“ anti-Georgia ”, which committed anti-state and barbaric actions against the nation, will lead to the international isolation of Georgia ...”, said the President of Georgia. Saakashvili was supported by the Secretary of the Security Council of Georgia Giga Bokeria. He made the same demands on the government. "I want to urge the prime minister and the new government to change this decision and not return the monument to the executioner in our cities," said Bokeria.

    Well done! Worthy politician !!! He took the USSR with a plow, and left with the atomic bomb! hi
    There have been many attempts to "tarnish", both in the West and in the USSR, but "gold does not rust." hi
    He also had mistakes, but he did much more for the country than for the bad.
    Earlier, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili opposed the restoration of the monument to Joseph Stalin. He called the communist leader "anti-Georgian."

    Saakashvili himself is an “anti-Georgian” and subhuman.

        Our monuments are erected not for those who defended their homeland, but for those who sold. It is clear that Chinese marble is symbolic, but I don’t understand why not in the form of a bubble with water

          Well, it’s just very symbolic, the EBN has never been sober, and he’ve done so many drunken things: he conducted an orchestra, wrote on the landing gear in front of a meeting of the delegation, “played” with the president of Kyrgyzstan Askar Akayev. ..
          So everything is correct, except for the staging of the monument itself hi

        She won’t choke ... More precisely, she won’t have time. But the monument itself is really symbolic. For so many years the USSR, Russia were poured mud, so many once respected people (like Kikabidze) were indignant about the tyranny and atrocities of the Soviet regime, and so? inwardly, the people themselves gave the way, where now it is necessary to go ... Stalin and democracy somehow do not fit with each other.

            But is it possible in more detail: who paid, who ordered, where is it? Understand, only no offense, if this is a monument to the Big Three: Stalin, Roosevelt, Churchill is one thing. Another thing is in the central square of the town, and it is cast alone in bronze. Further, according to their laws, an American can put up a monument to anyone he wants on the lawn in front of his house, that is, in private territory.
            I am sure decades will pass, and monuments will be placed on Stalin. I think that they will put him more than to all politicians and figures combined. This is confirmed by the poll "Name of Russia". Stalin's figure is so enormous on a historical scale that it is impossible to ignore the Great, with a capital letter, feats, victories accomplished in his leadership of the country.

        Well, damn it, give! Yes, precisely by why the battle of Stalingrad, and the city of Volgograd. By the way, I recalled in connection with the article how, in the hunchbacked times of late socialism, our progressive intelligentsia laughed at Stalin's statement that the class struggle would only intensify with the construction of a socialist state. So they giggled in the late USSR before the collapse, supposedly what kind of nonsense - socialism is getting stronger, and the struggle is intensifying, now even Zyuganov does not mention it, he strives more and more to talk about Christ, they say the first communist, but that's why he needs to write out a party ticket, how He doesn’t want to Lenin, if only he would write No. 2. laughing

          A monument to such a person is simply obliged to be, and not only in Georgia, but at least in Moscow. Khrushchev’s decision to demolish the monuments to Stalin must be declared unlawful, for who he is, this Khrushchev was removed from his post, the people did not respect him, and he came to power in a very dubious way ..

    The situation in the country, public opinion is developing in such a way that Stalin's merits already give me the right to erect a monument in Russia, albeit with national money, I would give my hard-earned money. We have a huge number of patriotic parties and organizations that consider Stalin their banner, and Georgians thought of it, ashamed. The construction of the monument, or perhaps several, with national money, could unite patriotic forces.

    It seems that they were going to return to the place a monument to Stalin in his hometown of Gori. It would be nice, because there was also his house-museum.

    It would be nice to erect a monument with us. All the same, thanks to him, they won the great war and did not allow the Americans to trample us.

    It's nice that people collect money for monuments to Stalin, despite the liberal hysteria.

    People wake up gene memory!

    In Russia, this memory woke up long ago !!!!
    Telavi (Georgia) unveiled monument to Joseph Stalin

    In Russia, in Moscow, for a long time it was necessary to erect a monument to I.V. STALIN !!!
    And finally rename Volgograd to STALINGRAD !!!

    In our city of Orenburg we’ve put a bust. Communist Party local fellows achieved. But in Moscow it is necessary to set. Instead of the Mausoleum (I apologize for whom I offended with my offer). Just your opinion as a historian by education.

    In Moscow, a monument to Stalin always stood, stands and will stand on the grave behind the mausoleum and all the time in flowers, unlike other leaders. I stood in the military service there at the post. soldier

    Earlier, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili opposed the restoration of the monument to Joseph Stalin. He called the communist leader "anti-Georgian"

    The bear freaks out, because he understands that no one will erect a monument to him, he can only count on caricatures in magazines))
    By the way, there is a monument to Stalin in The Hague and in Germany (in Gundelfingen)

    Thank!!!! in the end, the Georgians fought with the Russians in that war, and the Georgian, with the Russians, hoisted the banner of victory on the Reichstag! and the current situation between the two countries is the machinations of ... out of a rotten power.

    Well done Georgians can !!!!

    Was in the summer in Georgia. The attitude to Joseph Vissarionovich in the country is, well, approximately the same as ours, older (smarter) with great respect, young people hardly remember who it is. The education system they have is MORE!
    As for the erection of the monument, the Georgians have nothing to do with it. This is Bujina. so that Saka doesn’t sleep well.
