Ataman Monument to Appear in the Kemerovo Region

On August 24 the Atamanovo Village in the Kemerovo Region celebrated its birthday.

      As a festive gift to the locals a monument to the village founder - Cossack Timofey Dorofeyev has been set up in the main square.

      It is remarkable that the ataman’ figure has been cast life-sized. The sculpture model was made in China, and then the monument was cast of iron in Vladivostok.

      “Atamanovo Village is one of the very first agricultural settlements in the south of Kuzbass - the press secretary of the Novokuznetsk District administration Alexander Rakovsky said. – It grew up from a farm of the cavalry Cossack Dorofeyev who subsequently became an ataman. It happened in 1652. The ataman was attracted by wildness and inaccessibility of this place combined with richness of nature and abundance of fertile lands”.
