Topic: Stolypin, Pyotr
Monumental Art Committee at Moscow City Council has approved the idea of setting up a monument to the well-known reformer Pyotr Stolypin.
However, the future place of the monument and its financial source still remain unknown.
In 2002 the Committee already considered the possibility of creating a monument to Stolypin, however the experts then decided that one monument to the reformer in St. Petersburg is enough. Instead, it was decided to put up a monument to the storyteller Hans Christian Andersen. After all it was never established due to the economical crisis.
Next year will be the 150th anniversary since Pyotr Stolypin's birth.
