The publication of Gennady Zhivotov "Touched!" in "The Zavtra" newspaper (Febrary, 2014, № 7 (1056)) re: CNN lists.
Here are comments addressed to our web-site on the list of the ugliest monuments posted on CNN web portal including the sculpture ‘Fortitude’ (the Author’s version ‘Soldier’), a part of Courage Memorial, Brest Hero-Fortress – ‘To the Defenders of Brest Fortress’, created by a composite author led by A.P. Kibalnikov.
Scandal inflamed round the American TV company CNN. Her journalists made a rating of the ugliest monuments of the world. The main monument of a memorial complex appears in it the Brest fortress — "Courage" also. Americans didn't like a look of the Soviet soldier. In Russia and Belarus one considered this rating as provocation, and others — ignorance. During defense of fortress four thousand her defenders were lost. And one of the most tragic pages of the Great Patriotic War – hardly a good reason for jokes.
