A statue of Vladimir Lenin has returned to a Polish town which was constructed by the communists in the hope of it becoming a proletarian bastion.

But instead of striking a dramatic pose designed to inspire revolution, the new Lenin statue in Nowa Huta comes bright green in colour, and depicts the revolutionary leader relieving himself, with a water feature providing the necessary effects.

I think it an appropriate pose. Lenin was a terrible communist, and the result of the soviet imposition on Poland was 50 years of economic and social stasis. In other words, Russia pissed on Poland. The Poles are now returning the favor.
