Vodka Monument Demolished in Udmurtia

A vodka monument set up 13 years back has been demolished in the Udmurt city of Glazov.

      The monument was dismantled according to a decision of the antimonopoly department. The matter is that the monument to a bottle of vodka was established in honor of the 100th anniversary of the local alcoholic beverage plant, and supervising department saw signs of advertizing of the enterprise’s production in its existence.

      Earlier it was reported that there was probability of the monument’s demolition, because it could be seen as promotion of taking alcoholic drinks. Now the sculpture is located in the plant territory. Nothing has been reported about its following lot. The monument to vodka was not the only Udmurt monument associated with gastronomy. Thus, a dumpling monument was erected in the republic’s capital city of Izhevsk. This sculptural composition still remains in its place.
