A Drunk Russian Dude Demolished A Statue Of Lenin While Taking A Selfie

They're a popular site for photos. A 30-year-old man was inebriated, according to local reports, when he decided to take a selfie with a Lenin statue in Prokolevsk, in the Siberian region of Kemerovo.

Much like the peasants during the Russian revolution, the result of his actions were not quite what the man was hoping for. And Lenin wasn't quite as hearty as he seemed.

It remains to be seen whether breaking the statue — which local children had already broken before — will invoke some sort of Communist curse on the man. But so(viet) far, if there is one, it's stall(in) its response.
