Monument to Musa Jalil Opens in Moscow

A monument to the Tatar poet Musa Jalil has been unveiled in the southeast of Moscow on August 24.

      The monument created by the merited artist of Russia Yury Zlotya has been set up in Musa Jalil Street. Funds for installation of the monument were allocated by the governments of Moscow and Tatarstan. The monument was planned to be set up in Moscow in 2008, however, in 2009 the project was postponed due to the financial crisis.

      The poet’s daughter Chulpan Zalilova, the Tatarstan prime minister Ildar Halikov, the deputy minister of culture of Russia Andrey Busygin and representatives of the Tatar diaspora in Moscow attended the unveiling ceremony, which was timed to the 68th anniversary since the death of Musa Jalil. The People’s Actor of Russia Sergey Shakurov recited Musa Jalil’s poems at the ceremony.
