Lenin Statue Damaged in Bomb Blast Near St. Petersburg

A bronze statue of Vladimir Lenin was damaged when a bomb exploded in the suburb of St. Petersburg late yesterday, state television said.

Nobody was injured in the explosion, which occurred at about 11 p.m. in Pushkin, about 24 kilometers (15 miles) south of St. Petersburg, the channel said, citing police. The blast tilted the statue and broke several windows in the neighborhood.

A similar explosion last year blew a hole in a Lenin statue near the train station in St. Petersburg where the Soviet leader marked his return from exile in 1917 to lead the Communist Revolution.

St. Petersburg was renamed Leningrad to honor the founder of the Soviet Union after his death in 1924.
