Monumental Man?

This character's name is Bohdan Khmelnytsky and he is quite venerated in Ukraine, as evidenced by his presence on the 5 hryvnia bill.
Unfortunately, it appears as though he was responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands - the largest number being among the Jews.

Apart from the mass killings and crazy facial hair, what else do you have to do to get on the a hryvnia bill and get such a cool base for your statue?

A tribute to a mean, mean man.

I do enjoy reading your blog and learning about Kiev.

Thanks for coming by my place today.
