The installations with elements of Soviet life, installed on the Alley of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes for the Independence Day of Ukraine, will be dismantled in the near future. This decision was made by the organizers of the exhibition, according to the Institute of National Memory.

“Temporary installations, which symbolized different time periods, were needed for the filming of a project. Given the sensitivity of the place, after communicating with all parties involved, the organizers agreed to remove the structures and move the filming to a different location”, the Institute stated.

As it was noted, the structures that were being installed on the Alley of Heavenly Hundred Heroes were a part of a historical artistic theatrical production. According to the director's creative plan, the performance aimed to briefly show all the eras that Ukraine has gone through on its way to independence.

Earlier, it was reported that the President's Office promised to reconsider the concept of installations on the Alley of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes in Kyiv. This decision was allegedly made because of public outrage.
