Kiev: The Ukrainian city of Odessa has unveiled the world's second public monument to late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

The 200-kg, two-metre-high metal monument is shaped like an open palm, with Apple's logo, an apple with a bite mark, cut through it, the Odessa administration reported on its website.
