A controversial new statue of Joseph Stalin, the former leader of the Soviet Union. has been unveiled in Ukraine, to the horror of many people living there.

For some Stalin is a hero figure, but those Ukrainians who remember the atrocities committed under his rule in the 1930s - during which millions were killed - the statue is an insult.
