Ah, monuments, Soviet Style. Especially if memorializing World War II. They are just so much bigger than life! Big! Bold! Heroic!

The Battle of the Dnieper Statue is located at the Museum of the Great Patriotic War in Kiev. It commemorates a pivotal battle that liberated Kiev from Nazi Germany. This is just one of the, well, monumental monuments found on the grounds.
