On the Antonov-225's split vertical stabilizers, there is a 'spiked' structure pointing directly rearwards (as you can see below). What is the purpose of these two structures?
It appears to be the extension of the aerodynamic fairing between the vertical and horizontal tails (note that the horizontal tail extends outside the vertical one). It can be seen more clearly in the following image.

This type of fairings (usually called bullet fairings) are found in 'T' tails and other types of tails (like cruciform tail) where two surface intersect each other at right angles and are used to reduce interference drag (and flow seperation). For example, the following image shows the fairing in C-141 Starlifter, an aircraft with 'T' tail.
