“We have never represented dictators like Hitler in the Grevin Museum, we don’t want to represent Putin today,” the director of the museum said. He added that Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy might be a contender for the spot in the museum.
The statue, which was created in 2000, was moved to a warehouse until further notice. Wax statue of Vladimir Putin removed from Paris museum.
