Monument to Singer Vadim Kozin Appears in Magadan

A monument to the well-known Russian singer Vadim Kozin, who spent many years in Kolyma, has been unveiled in Magadan.

      Vadim Kozin was a chansonnier, composer and poet, the author of several hundred songs. He was a native of St. Petersburg. In 1944 Vadim was condemned for 8 years and sent to Kolyma labour camp. Biographers of the singer note that while serving the sentence Vadim Kozin was not involved in hard physical toil, but worked in the Magadan Music and Drama Theater along with other known actors imprisoned in Kolyma labour camp.

      The monument has been set up in the Carle Marx Public Garden, next to the house with the singer’s museum apartment. It is a sculpture created by the Magadan artist Yury Rudenko, who lived in the neighbourhood with the singer and depicted him just the way he saw him every day — wearing a coat and valenki (felt boots) and holding his pet cat in his hands.
