I definitely did not intend to insult any Ukrainians out there, it's just that the first one strikes me as very artistic on a gigantic scale while the second one simply did not do for me.

La estatua "Mother Russia" es para mi la mejor estatua en el mundo mucho mejor que el buda, el cristo redentor, la de la libertad.. me parece espectacular

The Motherland statue is leaning and is in danger of collapse! This is due to rising water levels and the fact that the massive statue is not attached to the ground, it is simply held there by its weight.

I've known about this statue since childhood and its truly magnificent. The sheer scale of it blows me away. Fantastic stuff.

The sword is only 82m high? It looks a lot taller than that.
