KYIV, Ukraine (AA) - Ukraine on Sunday has installed the country’s national trident on the Soviet-era Motherland monument, located in the capital Kyiv.

Images and footage of the Motherland Monument showed Ukraine’s coat of arms being fitted onto the shield of the 102-meter-high statue built in 1981, which had been emblazoned with the Soviet hammer and sickle symbol.
