August 17, 2015 23:37


A monument to the victims of political repressions will be opened in Moscow. The monument will be installed at the intersection of Sakharova Avenue and Bulvarnoe Ring Road, as the Head of the Presidential Human Rights Council (HRC) Mikhail Fedotov reported to “Interfax”.

“This place is good, there is a parking lot there now, and the projects submitted for the competition take into account the surrounding architectural environment” – Fedotov noted. According to his words, the proposed height of the monument is no less than 6 meters.

“It will be clearly visible, it will be a large monument visible from a large distance, I hope it will become one of the attractions of our city” - the Head of HRC noted. Fedotov also reported that it was planned to build the monument above the ground, not underground, although there had been many such ideas. According to RIA “Novosti”, 350 works were submitted for the competition by teams and individual authors.

The finalists’ projects will be determined by the jury before the end of August, then their public discussion will begin. It is planned to choose the final version of the monument by October 30, the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Political Repressions, after this the work on the construction of the monument will begin.

The concept of state policy on perpetuating the memory of victims of political repressions approved by the Russian government will be published on August 18. The document notes that, although the rehabilitation of victims of political repression was launched by the USSR leadership in 1953, the process has never been complete. In particular, the work on identification of the burial sites of victims of repressions is underway, no national monument has been installed yet.
