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.
