Alexei Kudrin, the Minister of Finance, has transferred his month's salary, about 172,84 thousands roubles, for a monument of Pyotr Stolypin.


The celebrating of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Pyotr Stolypin, the last prominent reformer in the Russian Empire's Government, will take place in 2012. It is planned to erect the monument near the House of Government and to name after Stolypin a street and a university in Moscow.


       "The Minister of Finance Alexei Kudrin has already transferred some money to the regional social fund of learning the Stolypin's heritage", his assistant said to press.


      Earlier at the organizing committee of preparing for the 150th anniversary of the birth of Stolypin, the prime-minister Vladimir Putin said that the members of the government should transfer at least their month's salaries for the monument's building.


      Pyotr Stolypin was born on 17 April 1862. He went down in Russian history as a prominent reformer. His reforms gave the country an opportunity to take fifth place in the world on the rate of economic growth, to create a favourable investment and tax climate for industry and enterprise in Russia. Stolypin was killed in  1911 and was buried on the territory of Kievo-Pecherskaya Lavra in Kiev, Ukraine.
