Monument to the Cheka ( aka All-Russian Emergency Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage later known as KGB ) @ Lybidska Square //‪‬ Kiev //‪‬ Ukraine// 1967 // Sculptor Василь Бородай – Vasiliy Boroday

No scholars are sure how many were killed by the Cheka during the soviet ‘Red Terror’ ( 1918–1922 ) and the figures vary widely from 50 000 to a quarter million people.
