Russians to erect monument to Putin
Translated by: A.M.

A monument to Russian President Vladimir Putin is being erected in Saint Petersburg, the Ataman of the IRBIS Orthodox Cossack Society, Andrey Polyakov, announced on Echo of Petersburg, February 16, reports .

According to Polyakov, a monument also will be erected to the Russian Cossack Ataman Pyotr Krasnov. Both men are being honored for their active participation “in the revival of the Russian Empire.”

The unveiling of the monuments is planned for May this year on private land in the north of Saint Petersburg. The composition will include a miniature of the Potemkin steps in Odesa, and Putin and Krasnov will be gazing at each other, Polyakov explained.

As is well known, in March 2014 Putin signed a decree on the union of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol with Russia. Ukraine and most other countries regard this event as annexation.
