One More Monument to Ivan Susanin to Appear in Kostroma

The third monument to Ivan Susanin may appear in Kostroma: the community suggests restoring his ancient monument.

      The monument by the sculptor Demut-Malinovsky was set up in the main square of Kostroma in 1851. Honorary freemen of Kostroma addressed to the Mayor Yury Zhurin with a request to restore the heroic peasant Ivan Susanin and the tsar Mikhail Romanov’s monument that was destroyed in the Soviet era.

      Now the city has Ivan Susanin monument by the sculptor Lavinsky: it was set up   downtown in 1967. A new monument to the tsar Mikhail Romanov and the peasant Ivan Susanin was set up by the initiative of the Kostroma ex-mayor Boris Korobov in February this year. It is an undersized and not quite an exact replica of the monument erected back in 1851.
