My first thought is to blow it up whilst all the BSP commies are having their annual picnic there ;)
But seriously, the Monument of Oppression should remain in its current state and be allowed to crumble away, bit by bit, and let it die a slow and lonely death; just like what many people experienced during the regime. Apparently, the commie fat cats of the day spent around 14 million leva to build that grotesque piece of concrete, barely 10 years before the regime and communism fell and ended. What a waste of money! Not everyone was agreed with this project obviously, but expressing an opinion on the subject then would have put your life in jeopardy, so they suffered in silence; whilst the powers that be happily spent all of their comrades money on this glorified folly, whilst the poor little comrades were busy toiling away on it for 5 years. One can imagine the perks that were available to the hierarchy during the construction, it must have been like Christmas. Let the place rot to a timely death and not 1 lev more should be spent on this vulgar, macabre, ugly eyesore.
It should be renovated and opened as a monument to the folly of Communism. I suggest confiscating all Russian-owned property anywhere in the country - starting with the embassy and proceeding to apartments on the Black Sea - and informing the previous owners that the country thanks them for their sacrifice. Government-funded flights will be laid on to take them back where they belong.
The properties can then be sold at a discount to Ukrainians dispossessed by the recent Soviet invasions of their country......
Visited this place a couple of years back and it is truly amazing. Such a crime it has been allowed to fall into ruination. I believe there must be an EU fund that could be used to rebuild this place. Politics aside (I am not a communist or even a socialist but, if anything, middle/right) this place is unique and should be seen as a tourist attraction and should be rebuilt and marketed and used.
