In Kyiv the unknown stole the bronze sculpture of Lesya Ukrainka. It was placed to apartment building façade in 1971. Lesya used to live there with her family. Now it is a museum.

Bronze bust of the poetess and memorable board were a single composition.

Culture workers believe the thieves were professionals.

However, that was not the first attempt to steal Lesya’s memorial – a week ago bronze garlands were stolen from her tomb.
