Mobile phone ads with Lenin spark anger in Poland

A woman walks past a poster advertising a Polish mobile phone operator with a cartoon of Russian revolution leader Vladimir Lenin, in Warsaw, Poland, Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013, with the city's landmark, the communist-era Palace of Culture in the background. The operator decided to stop its advertising campaign, as many Poles remember Lenin for shaping a communist regime that killed millions and imposed mass terror in the Soviet Union. A communist regime was later imposed on Poles against their will by the Soviets after World War II. The writing on the poster reads: 60 minutes to all networks for 1 Polish zloty ( 30 US cents, 25 euro cents). (AP Photo/Alik Keplicz)
