While googling, I found some interesting photos. Take a look.
Russia (it doesn't say where)
China (I don't know where)
And, we all need Lenin and the rest
My personal favourite (no. I don't know who the doofus by Lenin is)
Kirov - oppa!
"Bleh, i don't even know what i'm arguing for. What a stupid rant. Disregard what i wrote." - Loz
"Every time is gyros time" - Stalinista
It would be really freaky to stand under one of those statues and have lenin or stalin stare at you....Ugh...I wouldn't be able to sleep again.
Whoppee for Comrade Sergei.

Enjoy our Socialist Weekend!
Here is a picture of a statue of Lenin in the USA. It is in Washington State. Read about it here: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/attract/WASEAlenin.html
“This is not what we fought for (Poverty). We dreamt of how rich life would be after the war” - Nikolai Protasov, Great Patriotic War Veteran
I saw similar statue when I was in Moscow in 2003. (I'm not sure if this is the same one)
That statue that I saw consisted of 3 soldiers who symbolized the deffenders of Russian fatherland. One of those soldiers was in dark age uniform(war with Mongols), second in uniform of the Russian army in the war with Napoleon, and third - in Red Army uniform of the Great Patriotic War.
A Lenin statue in a very small Dutch settlement in the north of Groningen(the north-eastern province) called "Tjuchem". The story behind it from a Dutch website, there's more info on it in Voorwaarts!, but I can't find this particular issue at the moment.
"It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have
set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory." -Bill Nicholson
Here's a picture of a Lenin statue in Seattle's Fremont Neighborhood.
Apparently it can be bought for US$150,000!
"There are forty-nine states in the Union, and the Soviet of Washington"
"All Power to the Soviets!"
Ho Chi Minh statue (Ho Chi Minh City)
Here is a familiar HCM statue in the city's center. You can see Uncle Ho with children. The statue is located in a square in front of the People's Committee building (which lies behind the statue).
Pretty classy for Vietnam.
That Uncle Ho's statue is neat. I like it.
A statue of Lenin in NYC's East Village.
The "Rodina Mat" statue on Mamayev Kurgan in Volograd.
Statue of Lenin in Archanglesk.
What's the difference between ignorance and apathy? I don't know and I don't care.
Josip Broz Tito's statue in Kumrovec
I like how the first pic of Stalin didn't have a nose.

Whoppee for Comrade Sergei.
