I always asked myself this question:

Why doesn’t this sculpture face in the direction of the enemy of the entire global proletariat? That is, she doesn’t look in the direction of the West, threatening all the imperialists with a sword while trying to protect her homeland with a shield. Rather, Mother Motherland looks in the direction of the East.

I couldn’t find the answer to this question–couldn’t, until recently. Now I know why. The sculpture’s creator, Ukrainian sculptor Vasyl Borodai, judging by this, suspected where the enemy would come from in the future. That’s why the 100-meter [328 ft] statue is facing East. Mother Motherland is looking at Russia. And she holds the shield and the sword in her hands. And she is definitely aware from where the Fascists are coming.
