What Is Lenin, Stalin and Dzerzhinsky Doing at the Bottom of Black Sea

1.jpeg

At Cape Tarhankut in Crimea, a hundred meters from the shore, there is anunusual museum - an underwater analogue of Moscow "Muzeon". In 1992,a diver Vladimir Borumensky found at a depth of 12-15 meters the firstsculptures of the Soviet leaders, that had already been dismantled in theCrimean cities and towns. Then busts of Lenin, Marx and Voroshilov settledhere. Borumensky planned his venture in a big way and wanted to bring Mao,Mussolini, and Napoleon to the Soviet pantheon.

The Emperor has not appeared on the original Walk of Fame,but divers from all over Ukraine started to complement the collection of Sovietleaders. Today in the underwater Museum there are several dozens of exhibits,from Stalin and Dzerzhinsky to Gorky and Gagarin. There is a department ofwriters, there is Lenin leading the boy by the hand, and the other raresculptures that do not fit in the traditional Soviet canon.
