11 September 2014. Here’s Something Else That the Ukie Nationalists Are Claiming…

00 Zurab Tseretelli. 11.09.14


Some demented Ukies on the web are claiming that the Ukraine gave the above sculpture to the USA as a gift to commemorate 9/11. That’s not true (that surprised you, grasshopper?)… it’s the usual Winnegan’s Fake from the fascist nutters. It’s the Tear of Grief (actually titled “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism”) by the controversial Georgian/Russian sculptor Zurab Tsereteli. It features a 40-foot teardrop suspended in the fissure of a 106-foot bronze rectangular tower. The monument includes the names of all the victims of the 9/11 attacks in New York, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania, as well as the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center. At the ground breaking for the massive project, President V V Putin was present and called the sculpture “a gift from the people of Russia”. It’s located at the tip of the decommissioned Military Ocean Terminal, now rechristened The Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor, in Bayonne NJ (after nearby Jersey City NJ first accepted, then declined, the free monument); its dedication was on 11 September 2006.
