Russian officials probe statue scandals

Investigation into how businessmen splashed out cash to try to immortalise themselves in Moscow park.

In Russia, illegal statues depicting rich businessmen are being knocked down in Moscow’s famous Muzeon park as part of a crackdown on corruption by local authorities.
