Social activists, seeking the installation in Novosibirsk the monument to Joseph Stalin, after the failure of the city Council to install it in a public place agreed with the proposal of the regional Committee of the Communist party about the installation of the bust on its territory, said on Saturday the head of the initiative group Alexey Denisyuk.

Arts Council of Novosibirsk on November 9 for the third time did not support the installation of a monument to Stalin, thinking that in any public place it will cause a negative reaction from a significant part of the city’s residents and will continue to provoke acts of vandalism. The Council suggested that the Stalinists set the bust on the territory of the regional Committee of the Communist party. The Communists themselves have put forward such a proposal, however, members of the initiative group opposed, noting that the monument must be set to «the historically significant, Central part of the city or in the vicinity of military glory», and not near buildings of wooden architecture.

«In connection with the refusal of the municipality in the coordination of the installation of the monument to Stalin in public areas to accept the proposal of the regional Committee of the Communist party to erect a monument on his private territory – the street Bolshevik, 29», — is spoken in the decision of the initiative group, which is sent out to the media Denisyuk.

The Stalinists put forward to the regional Committee of the Communist party. In particular, the Novosibirsk Communists will have to erect a monument to the 9th may 2019 at its own expense, to care for him, set up surveillance and, if necessary, round the clock security, and in the case of damage by vandals monument to repair it at his own expense. Meeting of the initiative group with representatives of the regional Committee of the Communist party to discuss the terms of installing the bust will take place next week, said Denisyuk.

Public comment in October 2018 showed that citizens relate to the installation of the monument to Stalin radically opposite. In October the joint strategic command of the CVO in response to one of initiators of installation of a bust of Alexey Denisyuk refused to install a monument to Stalin near the House of officers in Novosibirsk in connection with his forthcoming large-scale reconstruction. Also, the military has proposed to consider that when making decisions to perpetuate the memory of Stalin, it is impossible not to take into account its «controversial role in the country’s history, to the present time is causing a mixed assessment».

The initiative group of inhabitants of Novosibirsk in the summer of 2016, is actively pursuing the installation in the centre of the monument to Stalin. In September 2016, the arts Council refused the installation of the monument in the Square of heroes of revolution. The mayor of Novosibirsk Communist Anatoly Lokot has agreed with the arts Council, noting that the monuments must unite people. At the end of September 2017, the arts Council of Novosibirsk for the second time did not support the installation of a monument to Stalin in the two proposed locations, in connection with the initiative, including that supported veterans of the great Patriotic war, established a working group on finding a place where it could be installed.
