Local authorities in Yelets, Vladivostok and Tyumen have already agreed to establish new monuments to tyrant of the Soviet era.

In turn, the residents of Krasnoyarsk are against the idea.

The capital of the Russian Federation is also against the proposal, which is explained by "anti-imperialist sentiments" in Moscow.

At the same time, according to the "Levada Center", 52% of Russians have a positive attitude to the Soviet "leader," while 30% consider him a negative character in history.
