Even The Wax Museum Is Ditching Vladimir Putin
A statue of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy may take its place alongside U.S. President Joe Biden, Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and China’s Xi Jinping in the world leaders display area, museum officials told AFP.
“Current events mean we don’t want him here and the staff don’t want to walk past him every day,” said museum director Yves Delhommeau.
“We have never represented dictators like Hitler in the Grevin Museum, we don’t want to represent Putin today,” Delhommeau added.
The Grevin’s waxwork of Putin was created in 2000. It was attacked multiple times over the weekend, said Delhommeau. The statue will not be melted down but preserved in a warehouse.
