joseph stalin statue bratislava

I was quite surprised to see this large statue of Joseph Stalin on display in Bratislava, Slovakia. Turned out it's part of an art/cultural exhibition, but many locals were not impressed. It's been hit by an assortment of items, including a large can of red paint, and who can blame the culprits as Stalin was a tyrant, and the murderer of millions of people. Can you see the remains of the red paint?
