Anger as Stalin returns to Ukraine

Statue of the Soviet leader is erected outside Communist Party offices.



    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.

    Matthew Collin reports from the city of Zaporizhzhia.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
