The monument has immortalized "orange revolution"
The orange revolution monument that consists of three ascending flags, bell and fountain was erected in Kyiv at Kontraktova area square.
The bell, which weighs 260 kilos, was adjusted with anchor chain capable to hold 36 tones. The yellow-color water in fountain is outsourced from Dnipro River, and thus filters will be soon adjusted.
The monument was raised on the initiative of sculptor Anatoly Ignashchenko. However, it is noteworthy that municipal authorities were unaware of its erection. It is being awaited that over the official opening Viktor Yushchenko will be the first to ring the bell.
