On the news coverage of Ukrainians protesting the governments' decision to sign the agreements with the European Union to avoid angering their Russian neighbors, the anchor identified the statue that was sledgehammered into submission as one depicting "Vladimir Lenin, a Russian Communist politician".  Well, not inaccurate I suppose, but perhaps a bit misleading.  ("Tonight's game will be played in Washington, D.C., named for a general and politician from Virginia".)
