NAKHODKA, Russia, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Police in Russia said three people were arrested for allegedly painting a statue of Lenin to make it appear the Soviet Leader was sitting on a block of cheese.

Investigators in Nakhodka, in the far east of the country, said three people in their 20s were caught in the act of painting the pedestal under the statue of Vladimir Lenin, The Moscow Times reported Thursday.

"Such pranks involving statues are unacceptable," a police spokesman told the Interfax news agency.

Police said the vandals will face prosecution.
