Sevastopol
[Ukraine, 2004]

The Crimean port of Sevastopol - until recently home of the Soviet Union's Black Sea fleet and closed even to Russians - is heaven for fans of social-realist art.
This statue of a sailor and a soldier, poised to attack an unseen enemy across the Black Sea, is massive even by Sevastopol's standards, but is now ringed by  weeds and decay.
