It is the second time Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance (UINR) directs a letter to the authorities of Kyiv’s Roshen factory, in which it reminds about the request to dismantle Karl Marx’s monument situated on its territory. This was stated in the statement posted on UINR site.

“According to Ukrainian legislation the monument of Karl Marx on the territory of Kyiv’s Roshen confectionary factory is the communist totalitarian regime insignia and is a subject to compulsory dismantling,’ writes the Institute.

Marxism teaching became the basis for rule of communist totalitarian regimes on the territory of Ukraine and other territories of the Eastern Europe, UINR reminds. 

Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance representatives requested this of factory’s authorities for the first time on September 25, 2015. But there was no official answer for that request.

Karl Marx was a philosopher, economist, sociologist, journalist, and revolutionary socialist. He published various works, the most well-known being the 1848 pamphlet The Communist Manifesto. His work has since influenced subsequent intellectual, economic, and political history. His economic critiques would result in influential works such as Capital (1867).

Earlier it was reported that the process of decommunization has been actively proceeding in Kyiv recently. There are a lot of renamed streets, dismantled monuments that symbolized or were connected to the Soviet Union and communist gospel.
