The toppling of Lenin's statues in Europe

What does Lenin's statues have to do with anything--the man died in 1924. And some of the toppling of Lenin's statues happen under governments that are more anti-communist than the US itself. I mean the governments Russia and Ukraine are hardly socialist.  Of course, there is a covert American hand in those spectacles, carrying bitter traces from the Cold War and impulses of revenge.  We now know that the US army orchestrated and choreographed the toppling of Saddam's statue in Firdaws square in Baghdad in 2003, after hiring thugs from Ahmad Chalabi's gang.
