Soviet memorial, West Hollywood

The only monument to soldiers of the former Soviet Union on US soil* is in West Hollywood.

The monument was and is controversial.

Out for a walk the other day we spotted this at the Russian language library:

How many of those are left?

* haven’t confirmed this myself and wouldn’t be shocked if there’s another example. I’m pretty sure there are at least like US-Soviet friendship memorials from WW2, or memorial stones/plaques given in tribute to the alliance of that time, or commemorating units that coordinated on the Siberian airlifts, at the Punchbowl in Hawaii for instance.
