A monument to Pyotr Stolypin is to be erected in the Siberian city of Omsk.
The monument is planned to be erected on the campus of the Omsk State Agrarian University. The creation and installment of the monument is to be financed by the Pyotr Stolypin Foundation for Development of Russian Culture.
Pyotr Arkadyevich Stolypin visited Omsk on 6-8 September, 1910, during a trip to the Volga region and Siberia. During his journey he visited the Nikolsky Army Cossack Church, as well as buildings of the Military Assembly and the Migration Department. The results of his journey were later published in the article Trip to Siberia and the Volga Region in 1911.
Stolypin served as Russia's prime minister from July 1906 to September 1911. He was assassinated at the Kiev Opera House on 14 September [O.S. 1 September], 1911, in the presence of Tsar Nicholas II and his two eldest daughters, Grand Duchesses Olga and Tatiana.
