There is not a single thing about this story that isn't farking AWESOME.

They've went from heroic to super-heroic. What's the problem?

/Okay, except for Ronald McDonald. I'll give them a pass on the Joker, though.

Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: You gotta give it to the Soviets for their war memorials...

The ultimate "Come at me, bro" statue.

Now, get in there and doll up Lenin.

Yeah, that one does kick symbolic ass. I was kind of let down when Firaxis teased it to be in Civ V but they couldn't use it. Apparently, there's a copyright or something.

Heroes!


Russia can shut up. Bulgaria has no requirement to even keep monuments of their occupation by communism and Soviet empire... yet alone stop them being vandalised.

Putin should be kissing Bulgarias ass and thanking them.

www.themoscowtimes.com Gotta love Wolverine. And the American flag.... That REALLY has to piss them off.
 
2014-08-21 11:26:22 AM  
Haven't they been doing this for quite a while? I thought I remembered pics of these statues tarted up as superheros showing up on the net years ago.
 
2014-08-21 11:26:55 AM  
And yet they never say anything when my neighborhood dresses up its Lenin statue for Christmas. What gives Russia?

I think Captain America is the greatest touch!

tell you what, russia - build some serious monuments of apology to the tens of millions that you murdered and displaced, and we might start listening to you.

in the entirety of russia, there are exactly two monuments that i know of that come anywhere close: to this meager goal: two solovetsky stones, one of which had to be paid for out of private donations.

fsck russia. and fsck anybody continuing to do business with it right now.

No, right now I can't. Maybe in a little while.

Hope Bulgaria gives them the tacit "Yes, we'll clean them up" response; as if to say "When we farking feel like it, we'll do it."  Just to let the Russians know they can go fark themselves.
 
2014-08-21 11:29:50 AM  
Of they could just embrace it like they've done with The Cardiff Kook

I love that Santa Claus is in there.

Vice ran this story like two years ago.
 
2014-08-21 11:33:43 AM  
That's really well done! That's no quick spray paint job, that's artistic.

And Russia can EABOD. They were a part of the USSR, not the final authority.
 
2014-08-21 11:34:38 AM  
Since they are a member of both the EU and NATO, there is bugger all that Russia can do about it except:

Or any memorial.  This is part of the monument to the Chernobyl firefighters.

Estonia had riots in the streets when they simply moved a Soviet war memorial.

Putin seems to take everything personally.
 
2014-08-21 11:36:26 AM  
Fantastic.
 
2014-08-21 11:37:07 AM  
Its perfect.
 
2014-08-21 11:38:43 AM  
Well the Soviet-err I mena Russians are planning on USING those again soon and they don;t want to have to go through a lot of work to shine them up you see

It's the wrong franchise.

I dunno. I think the bullet proof guy should lead the way. You'd think Santa would give himself a better weapon. A PPSH?
 
2014-08-21 11:40:51 AM  
Bulgaria has full NATO membership, which is like having a "Suck my dick, Putin" card.

/Expect Ukraine to get one of those within a decade, and Russia to cry about it.

PPSh is BEST tommygun. Was inwented by a little old lady in Leningrad. Capitalist running dog Thompson only copied.

This really does scream Awesome! I wonder how many drunk college kids it took to pull this off in one evening? They aren't exactly small statues.

/oh, and suck it Russia! We'll clean it when we're good and ready!

The North Pole joined up with the Allies when Santa discovered that the Krampus was sending coded messages to Berlin in 1940.
 
2014-08-21 11:44:57 AM  
LOL!  Yup, they're guilty of not giving the USSR the proper respect for all it did during WWII, like helping to start the whole farking thing in 1939.  Never forget that, Ivan. I don't care if you lost 30 million during the war, never forget you help start it.

That took some farking TIME.  It tells me it wasn;t a midnight spray paint job and the authorities must have been winking at the artist to let it happen

Let's see...  Wonder Woman, Robin, Cap America, Ronald McDonald, Superman, Santa, Joker, the Gorton's Fisherman, and the Yellow Power Ranger.  Which one is Wolverine?

Yea. Where with the west there was actual liberation, the soviets just looted and took over Eastern Europe. I can understand why some liked the Soviets better than the Germans but it was two boot heels of the same authoritarian.
