In Novosibirsk has established a three-meter monument to the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the USSR to Joseph Stalin. It will open on Victory Day, said the head of the initiative group on installation of a monument to Oleksiy Denysiuk, reports TASS.
He noted that on the occasion of the opening of the monument there will be a solemn ceremony with the participation of the mayor Anatoly Elbow. The monument will be opened under Soviet anthem and the state anthem of Russia. The bust of the Soviet leader made of bronze black color and is mounted on a three-meter granite pedestal of the Bolshevik on the street in front of the regional Committee of the Communist party.
In March it was reported that the Communists of Novosibirsk has made the installation of the bust of Stalin and agreed upon a sketch of the sculpture with the artistic Council of the city hall. Denisyuk said that the party had assumed all obligations and expenses for the installation of the monument. On either side of the bust would hang signs with the glorification of the Soviet leader in verse and quote Stalin himself.
Last year after the failure of the government of Novosibirsk to perpetuate Soviet leader in the city, the Communists decided to install the monument before may 9, 2019 for their money. In addition, they agreed to include the monument in good condition to install on-site lighting and video surveillance, and a security guard. Through the official website of the city for the installation of the monument was received 155 emails, but 97 were identical. Mixed results and confused the authorities, and the document was submitted for consideration of the arts Council of Novosibirsk.
The arts Council did not want to erect a new monument to the Soviet leader, citing the fact that the placement of the monument could “lead to the insult of honor and dignity” of the residents of the city, and the personality of Stalin “causes polar assessments”.
