Going beyond my collections of Lenins and Stalins, I've started sampling other statuary.

Aliyev

The wily Heydar Aliyev was in turn a KGB general, a Soviet Politburo member, a disgraced exile, and the driving force behind modern Azerbaijan.

Soviets

I have a large collection of Lenins and a smaller one of Stalins, but outside of sculpture gardens (such as the Tretyakov), other Soviet leaders are hard to find. So I was pleased to find Leonid Brezhnev posing casually in Novorossiysk, but quite unnerved to find Felix Dzherzhinsky still menacing the station square in Saratov. Ekaterinburg (from 1924-91 Sverdlovsk) still remembers Yakov Sverdlov.
