Three-Meter Statue of LDPR Leader Zhirinovsky Unveiled in Moscow

A three-meter bronze statue of Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the flamboyant leader of the LDPR party, was unveiled in central Moscow on Monday, the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper reported.

The sculpture by Zurab Tsereteli — made to mark the 70th birthday of the politician later this month — was installed on 1st Basmanny Pereulok, where the party headquarters is located.

The national anthem of the Russian Empire, “God Save the Tsar,” was played at the unveiling ceremony, according to the newspaper.
