Mikhail Tanich Monument to be Set up near Volgograd
Mikhail Tanich

A monument to the songwriter Mikhail Tanich, the founder of the Lesopoval band, is going to be set up in Svetloyarsky District of the Volgograd Region.
      It was here where the condemned Mikhail Tankhilevich (his real surname) served his term from 1949 to 1953 for anti-Soviet propaganda. The poet was exiled to the settlement near Volgograd. Being already known, he worked not in some hard manufacture but as a correspondent in the local newspaper Voskhod. In 1953 after Stalin's death he was amnestied and went to join the building of the Volga Hydroplant. Here he met his future wife Lydia Kozlova, who became the main muse of his life.
      Svetloyarsk businessman Alexander Tsyplakov, a long-term fan of the Lesopoval band, decided to set the poet in stone.
