Although the Interior Ministry denied that they are guarding the monument, the city forums discuss Lenin's bodyguards, reports TSN.
Kharkiv residents noticed that Lenin was placed under guard after a similar monument was demolished in Sumy. "Last time the police was guarding the statue of Lenin in 1990, then they were gone for 20 years, really - is it again post one?" notes historian Dikan.
There are rumors that in May they are going to erect a monument to Stalin.
