Stolypin's Monument to Appear in Moscow

About 30 million rubles ($957 240) were assigned by Moscow governor for the construction of the Pyotr Stolypin's monument in Moscow. The means will be received by the Fund of Pyotr Stolypin Heritage's Research, which was previously gathering donations for the monument. The city authorities also promise to compensate all costs above the donated money.

      The Monumental Building Committee approved the idea of Pyotr Stolypin monument's construction in March 2011. The monument was expected to open in April 2012 as an anniversary present for Stolypin's 150th birthday, but the construction was frozen because of money stress.

      In June 2011 several Russian top officials transmitted their month salaries to the monument's fund. The Moscow governor's donation completed the necessary sum.

      The Stolypin's monument is planned to be built not far from the White House, at the point of intersection of New Arbat and Konyushkovskaya streets.

      Pyotr Stolypin is one of the most prominant statesmen of the Russian Empire, the Prime Minister of the country from 1906 to 1911, a great politician and reformer. In 2008 Stolypin came second after the 13th-century warrior prince Alexander Nevsky in a state-sponsored nationwide poll to find Russia's greatest historical figure.
