"We expect that the work on replacing the Soviet coat of arms with the Trident will be completed on time. By the Day of the National Flag of Ukraine and Independence Day, we will be able to please the Ukrainian people with such an important and necessary element of our confrontation in the ideological struggle with the enemy," said Karandeiev.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, in July, the State Inspection for Architecture and Urban Planning issued a permit to refurbish the shield of the Ukrainian Motherland monument in Kyiv.

Project solutions provide for the replacement of the Soviet coat of arms installed on the shield with the Ukrainian Trident.
