The grand opening of Field Marshal Mikhail Kutuzov’s bust took place in Novosibirsk

Today in Novosibirsk, at the garrison House of Officers, the grand opening of the bust of Field Marshal Mikhail Kutuzov was held. The event was attended by representatives of the Novosibirsk All-Arms Command Command, the city administration, cadets of the Novosibirsk Higher Military Command School, war veterans and students of military-patriotic clubs.

The bust installation initiative belongs to the museum staff stories troops of the Siberian Military District, located in the Officers' House of the Novosibirsk garrison. They found in the archive a decision by Novonikolayevskaya (the former name of Novosibirsk) of the city duma to install the monument to field marshal Mikhail Kutuzov, dated July 8, 1914. It was not possible to bring it to life then, because in a few weeks the First World War began. Now, after 98 years, these patriotic intentions were realized.

According to military historians, about 1812 thousands of Siberians took part in World War 30 of the year. The largest military formation - 24-I Siberian Division - 17 numbered thousands of soldiers and officers.

    But there wasn’t enough money for a whole monument? Such a thunder-commander in chief was, and only a relatively small bust. But it’s better than nothing!
    The war of 12 years, one of the sad pages in the history of Russia!

        Guys and a girl !!! The main thing is not size wassat you can build a monument over three quarters and people will spit, or you can screw a plate to the building and constantly fresh flowers will be at the foot ...
        By the way, the bust is good and the inscription "GLORY FOR CENTURIES TO CITIZENS, GLORIFIED RUSSIA" in my opinion is worthy !!! hi

          I also have to agree with you. Monuments to Yeltsin - confirmation of your words. But still ... it’s a shame that someone who played the role of a wrecker rather than a savior erected large monuments, but only a bust to someone. Logically, it should be the other way around

    Fine, albeit after 98 years, albeit a bust, but they did.

      And what is more beautiful? It’s a joke full of sarcasm from hard humor. The participants of the war of 12 years didn’t wait for apartments about the Great Patriotic War veterans, it’s also not clear what about the heroes of the last wars, and you don’t even have to talk ?! This is not beautiful, it's terrible!

        I understand this perfectly well, but this discovery is symbolic, but as for the veterans, I am sure that money and apartments are allocated, just because of the size of the country and the cowardice of officials, this is all "lost" somewhere, and there is no way to control where.

    In 1976 he was on a business trip to Poland (military service). Due to the technical malfunction of our side. We were given a tour. In the city of Borislavice, they were at the Kutuzov Museum. He died in this building when he was chasing retreating Frenchmen. Before his death, he said: - My soul belongs to the Motherland, bury me in the Homeland. With my heart I have always been next to the Russian soldier, bury my heart here. There was a monument at this place. Interestingly preserved?

    I was in Poland in 1976 and was surprised to learn that his heart was buried here. "On April 17, 1813, the field marshal left Gainau for the city of Saxony - Dresden. On the way he caught a cold. I had to make a stop in Bunzlau. Kutuzov and his headquarters stayed in a two-story house. Being seriously ill, he continued to lead the troops. But the illness quickly
    progressed and on April 28 evening, Field Marshal Mikhail Illarionovich Kutuzov died. The body of the deceased was embalmed and laid in a zinc coffin. A small silver vessel with an embalmed heart was placed there at the head of the bed. The remaining remains were put in a small lead coffin and buried on May 8 on a hill near the Polish village of Boleslawiec, two kilometers west of Bunzlau. The coffin with the body of Kutuzov on May 9 was sent to St. Petersburg. On June 25, 1813, M.I. Kutuzov was buried with great honors in the Kazan Cathedral in St. Petersburg. Later, a monument was erected in front of the cathedral, which stands to this day.

    Have you heard the news? A personal information search site has appeared. Now everything became known, all the information about every resident of Ukraine, Russia and other CIS countries
    This site appeared recently - but it has already made a lot of noise, since there is a lot of personal information about each of us, I even found my own nude photos, not to mention even addresses, phone numbers, etc. It's good that the "hide from everyone" button is still working - I advise everyone to do it and quickly
