Mother Motherland

A beautiful photo with Mother Motherland looming on the horizon. This is a very large statue erected in Kiev by Russia to commemorate their victory in the "Great Patriotic War" (WWII). Ukraine was not the only recipient of Russia's "generosity", Motherland statues were placed in other various countries of the former Soviet Union. This specific statue is 102 meters tall and weighs in at a whopping 1/2 million kilos! That's one big momma :)
