With a very few exceptions, pictures of these monuments can not be 
uploaded on Commons due to the lack of freedom of panorama in Ukraine. 
Unfortunately, most of the Ukrainin users do not understand the concept 
of freedom of panorama and upload them anyway. In such cases, the files 
must be nominated for deletion.
