Monument to Prince Vladimir Might Appear in the Center of Moscow

Setting up a monument to Prince Vladimir, revered as the baptizer of Russia, has been suggested by the Coordination Council established specially for that occasion.
       The monument is expected to be set up in Lubyanka Square in the very center of Moscow.
       The coauthor of the project is the sculptor Victor Mitroshin, an honoured artist of Russia. According to him, the would-be monument to Prince Vladimir will be surrounded with mini-fountains established at its base. The composition as a whole will embody the Monomakh's Cap. As the architects aspire, the monument’s beauty will attract dating couples and newly-married couples on their weddings.
       There is already a monument to Grand Prince Vladimir in Kiev, Ukraine, where the Day of Christening of Russia has been a state holiday since 2008.
       In Russia the Day of Christening of Russia has been declared by the state a special memorial date since 2010.
