Solzhenitsyn Monument Unveiled in Belgorod

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn monument, the first monument to the writer in Russia, has been set up in Belgorod.

      The monument to the writer appeared in the Nobel Winners’ Avenue at the Belgorod State University on the day of the 137th anniversary of this educational institution. The monument to Solzhenitsyn has become the third sculpture in the avenue: earlier monuments to Ivan Bunin and Mikhail Sholokhov were established there. Monuments to other Nobel prize winners, such as Joseph Brodsky and Boris Pasternak, are also expected to appear in the avenue.

      According to the sculpture’s author Anatoly Shishkov, he has depicted the writer wearing gulag boots, thereby showing his hard life. The book that Solzhenitsyn is holding in his hands symbolizes his reflections about the destiny of Russia.
