This is “Mother Motherland” stainless steel monument in Kiev, Ukraine. Already 50 years old, at the moment it was finished it was the tallest statue in the world. Standing on the Museum of the Great Patriotic War, it stands 203 ft tall (taller than the Statue of Liberty) with the overall structure measuring 335 ft and weighing 560 tons. The sword is 52 ft long weighing 9 tons; the left hand holds up a 43 by 26 ft shield with the State Emblem of the Soviet Union.
