Soviet Army Monument's Many Makeovers

The Monument to the Soviet Army in Sofia, Bulgaria is quite large as military memorials go. Built in 1954, the monument is centered by a 120-ft-tall stone plinth supporting a statue of a Soviet soldier surrounded by admiring Bulgarian women.

The monument also features large bronze sculptural compositions on all four sides at ground level. The Monument has become a colorful canvas for protesters, much to the chagrin of Russian politicians.
