We stumbled upon this little monument by accident (just happened to be in the area). It brought a lot of nostalgia about little cartoon that featured the main character - the hedgehog lost in the fog. Watch the cartoon first (find it on YouTube).

This cutie is probably the most touching monument in Kyiv. Often referred to as The Hedgehog in the Fog, a hero of the fabulous short animated movie by Yurii Norshtein, which was an absolute cult for few generations in the Soviet Union and post-Soviet countries....More
