The authorities of the Finnish capital dismantled the monument «World Peace», which Moscow presented to the city in 1989.

The gift of Moscow, which stood in the metropolitan area of Hakaniemi for more than 30 years, was dismantled and taken away on a barge to the museum storage, according to the Finnish edition Yle. This monument, owned by a local art museum and representing the peaceful intentions of the USSR, depicts people from different continents holding a globe framed by branches in their raised hands. The city authorities explained the dismantling of the monument with plans to improve the street. It took them about a week to prepare for its transportation.
