The obelisk, was made up of five spires with three Soviet stars at the top, stood between two groups of statues: a band of three Red Army soldiers; and a woman representing the “Motherland” with her arms held high. The monument was built in 1985, while Latvia was still part of the Soviet Union.
COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — A concrete obelisk topped by Soviet stars that was the centerpiece of a monument commemorating the Red Army’s victory over Nazi Germany was taken down Thursday in Latvia’s capital — the latest in a series of Soviet monuments brought down after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Heavy machinery was spotted behind a green privacy fence at the foot of the nearly 80-meter (260-foot) obelisk shortly before it was felled. The column, which had stood like a high-rise in downtown Riga, crashed into a nearby pond, causing a huge splash at Victory Park.
A Latvian media outlet broadcast the event live as onlookers, some with Latvian flags wrapped around their shoulders, cheered and applauded.

Why people are celebrating this?
Because these “obelisks” are erected (pun intended) worldwide and they are a very Masonic and Demonic (sorry if that was repetitive) symbols…temples to the missing “phallus” of Osiris.
